There is a problem in Cape May County and it has a stranglehold on our youth. With the county only focusing on the summer season, our youth have nothing to look forward to in the winter which leads them down the wrong path. It's no secret that alcohol and drug abuse, suicide, and teenage pregnancy are problems that arise in the county. Our goal with the documentary film, Dreamchasers is to spread awareness about these issues and show that there are many talented young kids and young adults in the area that are affected by these circumstances. With our local government bodies endorsement of the film, we could work together and  to give real change for our youth to be able to evolve without negative vices or influences.

      I am signing this because, as time has gone by I have seen what this county can do to a person. It drags them down, and when they are down, it does nothing to help them up. The youth of cape may county need something to look forward to each year. Not just in the winter but all year. Maybe this will help policy makers take notice of their problems.

      Because I agree. The youth of Cape May are horribly surrounded by our society with drugs and alcohol as big activities since there is nothing else going on. These teens are very troubled with a county that is stuck also in these issues.

      This County needs this documentary. We need to let people know the truth about what goes on down here. Its a sad reality that so many of us and our friends have faced. The substance abuse in our county is a serious problem that need to be addressed. The lack of anything at all for young people to do after the summer has ended ruins the lives and opportunities for so may of this counties teens and young adults. There needs to be a serious change in our area because this problem is only getting worse.

      I've personally screwed up along with many others for these same reasons.. This looks like it's going to be a good one... I remember when this epidemic wasn't as rampant. When we used to have all these local shows and little venues to look forward too.. Now there's next to nothing and everybody wants to turn to dope ... I know I did.. It's horrible...

      I have lost friends owing to this fact. I have seen my brother and sister also lose friends.
