Letter to Santa

Dear Santa,
This is the first time I write to you.
I understand it was not possible this year. I hope that along the next year you can help our voices be heard. All we want is preventing people to be hurt by taking medicines that are causing too much harm. I don't think it's too much to ask. Look at all the side effects these drugs are promoting; look how difficult it's to withdraw and how seriously these medicines are affecting people's lives. Some people take theirs lives and the lives of others due to drug-induced violent behavior. We are telling it over and over again but it's been so difficult! I hope that by the end of the next year at least children can be saved from taking antidepressants, antipsychotics or benzos while they are developing.
Next year Santa, next year.

I think this is beautiful Ana, and it would be a much better world if Santa brought toys to everyone (even adults) instead of meds.

Take care my friend,
