    red ribbon week

    Post  andrewlin on Fri Oct 09, 2009 1:02 am

    We are all familiar with the red ribbon—it adorns our halls and school campuses every autumn as well as the trunks of our trees and lampposts. We all understand the red ribbon to represent the resolve to resist the traps and falls of drug abuse. However, the origin of and story behind Red Ribbon Week, observed this year from Oct. 24 to Nov. 1, is seldom told.
    Though few realize, Red Ribbon Week is dedicated to the memory of Enrique Camarena, a dedicated Drug Enforcement Administration Agent who successfully infiltrated and assisted in the disbandment of several drug trafficking bands before being kidnapped and tortured to death by Mexican drug traffickers. It is in his honor that we don the red ribbons and also in his cause’s spirit that we wear red on Oct. 28.
    However, we must keep in mind that we do not just commemorate Camarena but also his work and dedication to halting the spread of illegal drugs. His example is a reminder that we, as responsible human beings, ought to keep ourselves as well as our loved ones drug free.

    not quite done yet. still got the red ribbon week coming up.
