TERRY THEAIDWORKER 2 hours ago as stated on CBS Blog Jan 15th

Sean Penn is well spoken, thoughtful, and understands poverty alleviation. I know because at one point in my life I had contact with him over Haiti and Katrina. Forget that he is an actor. Although I suspect this work subsidises his activities, he is an advocate. He is an ‘AIDWORKER’. He knows the ground like only those of us who work the field in foreign countries do ( especially hard core journalists and humanitarians). We take calculated risks to make change. To seek out and secure information others are to afraid to attempt to get. But, as Sean Penn stated in this interview , he is not supported by DEA knowledge. He is not smarter than the Government. He is only a single man with his own personal network. And, in this instance his network led him like a good journalist or aidworker to the source. It is however only the bravest ( or some say the stupid as comments before me state… however I disagree!) to step into the world of crime and drugs. It takes the DANNY PEARLS of the world, which I consider Sean Penn, to enter places of risk. Visiting El Chapo a risk. But, he took it for the sake of our CHILDREN… To foster a discussion about DRUGS. He did not take this because he wanted to support El Chapo being apprehended. He took it to get to the source of the problem. To explore why? And, because of this he may be thought to be at risk. I think the risk is the backlash of people who are pointing fingers and avoiding the DISCUSSION ON DRUGS. We need this now as the illegal drug trade crosses every border including entering the world it never did in the past, the world of the middle class white teenager. Before, in years past we thought that this population was smart enough to stay away from street drugs..

But, this illegal trade is killing off more and more teens every day ( of every class) and the discussion on this issue seems all to quiet.

Sean Penn, thank you for taking your personal time to risk this conversation for the benefit of our teens…
