My new passion in life has become helping our NOPE Hillsborough Task Force share our powerful one hour presentation that shares three consistent messages for middle and high school students:
- Be the Hero and Tell Someone …. who can help if you or a family member or friend has a problem with drugs and/or alcohol
- One Time Can Kill … small quantities can kill and your first time use may be your last
- Make the Call! Dial 911 … if someone you know is exhibiting signs of overdose and/or acting ill after taking drugs and/or consuming alcohol
Follow this link to watch the video of our in-school presentation that took place yesterday at Ben Hill Middle School in Tampa, FL. You could have heard a pin drop as more than 300 8th grade students, teachers, and administrators experienced our NOPE Presentation that is changing lives when it comes to narcotic overdose deaths.
I thank God for the gift he has given me to feel compassion for others, to have a kind and loving spirit, and to have the ability to speak in public with little fear and lots of passion.
Thanks for listening to what is driving me these days – Beth Butler
