My father was born in Emporia, Kansas, in 1972. From the very beginning he suffered from secondhand smoke. His father would smoke every day and it ended with my dad starting to smoke at the age of 12. He died on July 28, 2016 due to cancer. This needs to stop. I know that people have it worse than me, so we need to stop this. I have friends of my own who are smoking, and they are in high school. I don’t want this to happen again.
