Program at Hogasnville Elementary. Hi, my name is Ashley and I am a D.A.R.E. student. I first started D.A.R.E. in August. So far I've been in D.A.R.E. for five months. I am going to tell you why you should not do drugs, violence, and join gangs. I le the D.A.R.E. program very much. I feel very com- fortable in D.A.R.E. I feel as if we are all special in our own dif- ferent way. I really think D.A.R.E. is wonderful for fifth graders. It shows us respect for ourselves. It also gives us a high self-esteem. D.A.R.E. has taught me a lot of things like why you should not do drugs and other no good stuff. I learned that if you are crazy enough to do alcohol, mar- ijuana and other drugs, it can cause a lot of damage, like: loss of memory, cancer and the one that really stands out is death. In D.A.R.E., I also learned that the value of life is more impor- tant than money, TV, rings, shoes, and cars. The Role- Models helped me a lot when they said, "You can be anything you want to be if you don't do drugs.".

I think, if you do not do drugs you can go to college, get a good job, and take care of your family. I wrote this paper because I want people to know why they should not do drugs and vio- lence. When you get in the fifth grade and have D.A.R.E., you will know a little about D.A.R.E. I will graduate from D.A.R.E. on the 18th of December. I earned it and I worked hard. P.S. Don't do drugs! ! ! Thank you. Ashley Bullock Hogansville Elementary Carl Stollar's Class This paper will be about what I learned through the D.A.R.E. program in my fifth - grade school year. I feel the D.A.R.E. program has helped me in many ways. It has taught me to say "NO THANKS" to drugs and alcohol. Officer Cotton taught me about gangs and other types of vio- lence. He has also taught me the many different ways in which to recognize how someone will try to trick you into buying sub- stances that are harmful to your body. I have learned the "8 ways to say NO." Some examples are: Walking away, cold shoulder, and saying "NO THANKS." My learning these examples and more, have helped me to recog- nize signs that will allow me to make healthy "decisions for keeping my body drug-free, and by controlling my actions to keep down violence. Staying drug-free and vio- lence-free is important to my future. I want to make good grades, have many friends, go to college, and have a ful career. In my future, is no room for drug The purpose of this was to give my view on have learned from feel very good about my to stay drug-free and free. I think my future bright because Carmen Hogansville Chuck Brazell's To take a stand, it to fight pressure, not use talk to kids about not drugs and by doing make a big difference in community. One of the reasons I nevertme drugs is because lost a lot of family drugs. Smoking weed my uncle to wreck his car. car crash almost killed When you use drugs you're only hurting yourself. The ond reason I choose not drugs is because it is bad! your health. Smoking weed l your brain cells. Smoking rettes can cause cancer probably a lot of other things. My last reason I choose! to use drugs is because they cause you to hurt other Some people drugs theysteal, bq;t, or kill to get a fix. ............ So finally, I cometo a sion, I will never use After you get through my paper, I hope you'll with me. I dare you to stand, a stand against dru violence.
