Sue B., OH

I am a respiratory therapist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. Every day I see children struggling to breathe. None of us can exist without air and water. These are the stuff of life for each of us.

Please consider carefully every action you take that affects the quality of the air we breathe. Once you have watched an innocent child struggle to breathe because air pollution has done permanent damage to his tiny lungs, you would consider carefully anything that would allow pollution to degrade the quality of our air.
