“Red Ribbon Week, ya’ll,” starts one frustrated mom in a video where she suggests awareness weeks in public schools may not as effective as hoped.
Specifically, this mom is at the end of her rope with a letter sent home to parents informing them of a Alcohol, Tobacco, Other Drugs and Violence Prevention awareness campaign, with the goal being to encourage students to be drug-free throughout their lives, she reads.
“That is a lie!” she says. “That is not the goal. The goal is to drive moms crazy with different outfits every single day. That’s the goal.”
On Monday – wear red, on Tuesday – crazy hair and crazy socks, “Wednesday — we’re too bright for drugs – wear neon,” she continues reading. “Because if you’ll think, towards the future, maybe when a child is offered drugs … and they become drug addicted, then their parents would say if you had dressed brighter, maybe none of this would have happened.”
Wear camo on Thursday?
“The problem is that people that wear camo are not invisible,” she says. “I feel perhaps that drugs might could still find you because it doesn’t make you an invisible person.
“So I’m just saying — crack doesn’t go away if you match the forest.”
What do you think of this mom’s stance? Do you share her frustration?
