2006 - Middle College High School, Empowerment Through Action, TeenAge Program


The Sky is the Limit

The sky is stretching on endlessly, always out of reach. The sky cannot be reached because it is endless. So there is no limit to it. Similarly, there is no limit to the tactics the tobacco industry will use to get younger and younger customers. The tobacco industry is using dirty tactics in order to make sales to younger customers. This makes tobacco a major issue because these tactics are working, and more and more teenagers are becoming addicted to tobacco.

However, there is no limit to the ways someone could prevent the tobacco industry from succeeding. There is no limit to these, and there is no limit to the sky. There for the sky is the limit.

Future Resident

I took a picture of a parking spot in my apartment building and it says "Future Resident." The grounds remind me of a graveyard and the message is that if you continue to smoke you may be the "Future Resident."
Tobacco has a BIG impact on your future. Tobacco Kills.
- Endia, Middle College High School ETA, 2006
