Hi, my name is Jenny, a fifth-grade student. The DARE program has definitely changed the way I decide to do things. Knowing how to make decisions can be the only way out of a risky situation sometimes.
DARE is important to me because I would have never thought that kids so small would be dealing with problems so big. Learning about drugs, violence and anything else we are faced with earlier in life would be better than learning it later on. Before I forget, I would like to thank my awesome DARE teacher, for teaching my classmates and me all about how to be drug free, not to fall for peer pressure and how to make the best decisions possible.
DARE has truly changed my life. It is one of those programs that only comes along once in a lifetime. From now on I promise to be drug free, violence free, and be respectful of all laws. Always remember, you make decisions for yourself; don't let other people make them for you.
