Smoking  and Remorse

Here is a video (.mp4 - 25mb!) of Don and his 8 year old Chinese friend Victor in a full feature news story (in Chinese)  about Don's efforts to educate people in Nanchang about smoking (From 2010).

The Hidden Power of Remorse
A presentation given to an International School's junior and senior classes

This is a three-part slide show presentation designed for English speaking Chinese, especially high school and college students. China's modern culture has incorporated smoking into part of its definition of what it is to be a Man, and although there is little health awareness regarding smoking, it is the cultural aspect that is primarily responsible for China's massive smoking epidemic. In the West, it is obviously too late to change the habits of the adult population; in China, as in the West, it will be the student population that mobilizes the change.
