National Safety Month Week #2 - Safeguard your Health By Melissa Esham 5/25/2016 My son came home from school when he was in 2nd grade and flat out refused to take any of his medicine until I proved that his name was on every prescription bottle. Luckily, all bottles were properly marked and he did remember the doctor prescribing these medications. On that day, my son had worked with the DARE program and a police officer told him that he should never take anything that was not prescribed to him. It is a lesson that we had to learn at the age of 8. It is a lesson that I try to reinforce daily to protect him. During the current epidemic of addiction and the destruction it is causing to our families and communities, please discuss this with your children, grandchildren and friends. #safe4life .
