A social experiment in America wanted to investigate the level of knowledge and care about young children smoking in American streets. A 10 year old boy posed asking for someone to light his cigarette. Many were shocked and angry; they grabbed the cigarette out of his mouth. Some passed by, staring without saying anything. One “kind” woman lit the cigarette for him.
But a man came along who had to talk through a “trache” device through a hole in his throat.. The boy asked; “why are you talking funny?” He explained to the boy that he and his parents used to smoke 2 packs a day. He got cancer from it and they cut this big hole in his throat and he lost his voice. The boy had tears in his eyes when the man said “promise me you’ll never smoke a cigarette”.
