A Carroll County family is turning its grief into a mission to educate the public about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

Dustin and Jennifer Noonkester started the nonprofit Brady’s Hope, following the death of their 19-year-old son.

The group's latest effort is a documentary called "When You Say Nothing."

The Noonkesters are hoping schools around the state use the “When You Say Nothing” documentary as part of their Red Ribbon Week activities the last week of October to educate people about the dangers of drug abuse.
