October 20, 2015 is the first day of Red Ribbon Week. Today at Garner Middle School the students were allowed to wear crazy socks, which is anything in your imagination. Today I walked around Garner and got to see the fun socks that the students where wearing. They are down at the bottom so I can show you the fun!
Although Red Ribbon week is happy for some, it is also to remember DEA Agent Enrique Camarena, who stood up against the destruction of drugs and was killed in the line of duty. Around the world, people wear red ribbons to honor him and his heroism. National Family Partnership was the first to sponsor the first Red Ribbon Week.
Some people think of drugs on red ribbon week but other people like me also think it is a time to remember the family members that have had the battle for cancer. Many drugs cause cancer and other disease so that is why we must stand up to drugs. We thank Enrique Camarena for his stance and what he did for the world and to stop drugs.
