Red Ribbon Campaign Week Start Tomorrow

The Red Ribbon Campaign is the oldest and largest drug prevention program in the nation, reaching millions of young people during Red Ribbon Week, which is held October 23rd - October 31st each year.
Red Ribbon Week is an ideal way for people and communities to unite and take a visible stand against drugs. Show your personal commitment to a drug-free lifestyle through the symbol of the Red Ribbon, October 23 - 31st.

The Red Ribbon Campaign was started when drug traffickers in Mexico City murdered DEA agent Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began the continuing tradition of displaying Red Ribbons as a symbol of intolerance towards the use of drugs. The mission of the Red Ribbon Campaign is to present a unified and visible commitment towards the creation of a DRUG - FREE AMERICA.

National Family Partnership is the sponsor of the National Red Ribbon Week®
Celebration and they are helping citizens across the country come together to keep children, families and communities safe, healthy and drug-free, through parent training, networking and sponsoring the National Red Ribbon Campaign.

A theme unifies each year’s campaign and helps to broadcast one message, creating a tipping point to change behavior. The 2016 National Red Ribbon Week Theme is: "YOLO. Be Drug Free." The theme was created by Kristopher "Jeremiah" Oakes and Logan Brehm, sixth graders at Claysburg-Kimmel Elementary School in Claysburg, Pennsylvania.

Jeep Riding, Hospital Visiting

Today, Shelby got to see her Daddy in the hospital. 
She didn't get to go inside, because I didn't want to overwhelm her.
Shelby seems to like sitting in the front passenger seat of my Jeep!  LOL
