If you're a child of the 80's -- or are a parent of one -- chances are you're familiar with Red Ribbon Week.
It's still around -- and it's this week, Oct. 25 through Oct. 29.
Red Ribbon Week was founded in 1985 in honor of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agent Enrique Camarena who was brutally murdered while on assignment in Mexico.
After his murder, people in his hometown of Calexico, Calif. donned red ribbons in remembrance. The red ribbons soon became a national symbol of the fight against drugs after the United States Congress signed a petition backed by First Lady Nancy Reagan to designate the last week in October as Red Ribbon Week.
Red Ribbon Week is still going strong in U.S. schools -- many teachers hand out red ribbons for students to wear all week. Many schools also organize special drug-free activities and programming to help drive home the week's anti-drug message.
