Freeper Canteen, Canteen Kids March 29, 2006 What I learned from the DARE Program
March 29, 2006

Posted on 03/28/2006 6:03:10 PM PST by Kidlett CLR

I am a DARE GRADUATE

Dare means: Drug Abuse Resistance Education

Click here for the Official D.A.R.E. Website

The program taught me

Ten Things Kids Can Do To Stop Violence  

 

Settle arguments with words, not fists or weapons. Don't stand around and form an audience when others are arguing. A group makes a good target for violence.
Learn safe routes for walking in the neighborhood, and know good places to seek help. Trust feelings, and if there's a sense of danger, get away fast.
Report crimes or suspicious actions to the police, school authorities, and parents. Be willing to testify if needed.
Don't open the door to anyone that you don't know and trust.
Never go anywhere with someone you don't know and trust.
If someone tries to abuse you, say no, get away, and tell a trusted adult. Remember, it's not the victim's fault.
Don't use alcohol or other drugs, and stay away from places and people associated with them.
Stick with friends who are also against violence and drugs, and stay away from known trouble spots.
Get involved to make school safer and better-having poster contests against violence, holding anti-drug rallies, counseling peers, settling disputes peacefully. If there's no program, help start one.
Help younger children learn to avoid being crime victims. Set a good example, and volunteer to help with community efforts to stop crime.

There are some really cool D.A.R.E. cars.

This is the dare officer that I get to see. He's nice, and he loves us kids.

 

DID YOU KNOW?  

 

Smoking accounts for one-third of all heart disease deaths?
The two most damaging chemicals found in cigarettes are tar and nicotine? The major cancer-causing chemical in tobacco smoke is tar, and nicotine is as addictive as heroin or cocaine.
The risk of developing cancer is 10 times greater for smokers than for nonsmokers. That's what you call a bad risk!
Smoking causes 85 percent of all lung cancer deaths, and lung cancer is the No. 1 killer in women?
People who smoke one pack of cigarettes a day decrease their life expectancy by about six years?
Tobacco companies spend over $3 billion every year on advertisements that glamorize smoking?
Smoking hurts your lungs and can cause respiratory conditions such as emphysema, bronchitis, chronic coughs, and a sore throat. Smoking makes it hard for a person to breathe.
Tobacco companies need to recruit 1,200 new smokers every day to replace those who have died.

A good summary of all that is in D.A.R.E. was written a long time ago.

1Cr 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
