Sad but True
23 October 2013 | by christsetiawan89See all my reviews

I am from Indonesia, my name Christ, my father died because of smoking, he got Cancer. He died and leave me when I am 13 years old, now I am 24 years old. I got this video from Prasetya Mulya Business School. After watching this video, I got surprise, but that's not what I want to be happened in my country. This video give me some information, that's very useful to continue the campaign against the Tobacco Company to sold their product without any constraint, as like we can see, they even sold the cigarette to the children. Today, what you see on this video, still happen to my country. In 2013, Joko Widodo, as Governor of Jakarta, start to reinforce the rules about the place to smoking. But that's not make significant change, because the smokers were ignorant people, they still smoking everywhere, any time, any place, without notice the children, the pregnant, old man, and the rest who against smoking. Another issue about the smokers, they always throw away the cigarette butt and the empty packs of cigarette not into trash can, but everywhere. That's so annoying, and defile the environment. So, I hope I can share this video to my community and share it as much as possible. I believe, If American, the Marlboro Country, can make change to significantly decreased the smoker, then I have faith someday that could be happen too in Indonesia.
