Nebraska, The land of corn and cattle
I always questioned the program, especially in small towns, I know that when I was first offered a beer at about 15 I didn't remember a word of the DARE program.
I also remember sitting at my sisters DARE graduation, (shes 5 years younger than me) thinking that a lot of those kids wont remember this same as I didn't.
But that's what we did, same as 1000s of other small town high school kids that came before us, nothing to do and no real connection to the outside world at that time. We drank beer, cruised main and went on booze cruises, maybe raised some hell in between, same as older siblings and our parents before us It was simple and honestly, it was kinda wholesome, I have no idea what kids do nowadays but I know that on Friday and Saturday nights that main street is empty.
