Just Say No
It was Red Ribbon Week at my kids’ school recently. I don’t know when or how the tradition started, but it’s a week of dressing crazy (pj’s to school, etc.), making posters, attending assemblies, and tying ribbons in the trees, all to promote drug awareness, or should I say anti-drug awareness.
Don’t have a clue if it works. It’s sort of weird to hear your child’s teacher say, “Did you sign the ‘No to Bad Drugs’ promise?” asking kids who can’t read yet, and probably don’t even understand the concept of drugs. But maybe they do. And when they sign, they get candy. Go figure.
On to Halloween.
