LOUISVILLE, Ky (WHAS11) -- One child at a time. That’s how we can survive a drug epidemic.
The Attorney General for Kentucky continues his assault on prescription drug abuse and tells students it’s a personal story as well.
“We had an issue in my own family that I don't go into details about and I really won’t because it’s kind of a private issue, but I have seen it first hand in my own family and if it can touch the Attorney General’s family, it can touch just about anybody. I would think,” said Jack Conway, Attorney General.
“I am sick and tired of going to places in the Commonwealth and people saying to me 'Jack we have lost an entire generation of people,’” said Conway.
Attorney General Jack Conway spoke to students at North Bullitt HS this morning.
It was part of his Keep Kentucky Kids Safe Campaign. He travels the state talking to students about the prescription drug problem in this state.
He was joined by a Morehead doctor who shared her personal story of losing her daughter to prescription drug abuse.
“I am very blessed because the last few words I said to Sarah were ‘I love you’ and she said ‘I love you too.’ And that has brought me a great peace,” said Dr. Karen Shay.
Conway launched the Keep Kentucky Kids Safe initiative in 2010.
