Lincoln Jr. High kids pledge to KICK BUTTS


I pledge to be tobacco free because…
I'm not dumb.
I don't want to die.
Smoke is not good for people.
It makes my lungs black.
I want to be an athlete.
I don't want yellow teeth.
Tobacco is very NASTY.
It is bad for your health and a waste of money.
I want to be healthy and make my family proud.
It smells like crazy.
Smoking kills.
I don't want to be sick.
I like being healthy.
…for my future.
Smoking is bad for the baby.
I don't want to die at a young age.
I want to be a professional figure skater.
I am cool enough.
Tobacco Kills!!!
I want to stay healthy, play basketball and DANCE with my TEAM I.G.O.D.
I want to free the money for other things.

These are just some of the things drawn and painted on t-shirts displayed on Lincoln Jr. High last week. There's more about the Kick Butts project via the Pioneer Press and the Chicago Tribune online.
