This week of October 22 -26 is Red Ribbon week. Which was created in 1985 by Amalia Hizon Mercado as a response to the murder of DEA Agent Enrique Camarena. The red ribbon was used as a symbol to raise awareness against drugs. The purpose of Red Ribbon Week is to present a commitment to living a safe, healthy, and drug-free life. The campaign is designed to create awareness for the problems related to the use of drugs and to support the decision to live drug-free.
