The 12th of April is observed and celebrated as National D.A.R.E Day in the United States. It has not been very long that the declaration for this day has been made and was merely back in April 2009 when Barrack Obama, President of the United States of America, proclaimed that this day in April is to be observed as National D.A.R.E. Day by the people of United States. The celebrations of the day should include appropriate programs and activities pertaining to Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E). The purpose of conducting these programs and activities is to educate young children and communities to the threats of drugs, gangs, and violence and to accentuate the efforts that can be taken to fight these threats. Hence, there can be a few celebrations associated with this day to make it a real significant one.
Charity Begins at Home
A good cause always starts from home. If you happen to have young kids at home, now is your duty to familiarize them with the evils of drugs and other threats that they are not aware of in depth. Hence, if you are into any kind of drugs, then it is good to quit them to set an example for the young kids.
Messages Condemning Drug Abuse
Almost all of us do a lot of messaging with our mobile phones. It will be something good to use our mobile phone today for a good cause. It will take only a few seconds to write a message condemning Drug Abuse and sending it to all the contacts in your mobile phone. If you are a student and not allowed to use a mobile phone, then make some cards, posters and banners that should highlight something against the threats of drugs, gangs and violence.
Advising your friends and others
There are proper programs and campaigns to educate people about D.A.R.E. However, as a responsible citizen, it should be your moral responsibility to acquaint others who are close to you and in drug abuse, gangs and violence. Even if you are able to bring one person out of ten on the right track, it will be a big achievement.
