The traffic lights were red, so the old man stopped his car and waited for them to change to green. While he was waiting, a police car came up behind him and ran into the back of his car. There were two policemen in the car, and they were very surprised and happy when the old man got out of his car and walked towards them without any trouble after such an accident. He was over 70 years old. The old man came up to the door of the police car, smiled kindly, and said, "Tell me, young men, how would you stop this car when the traffic lights are red, and I am not here?"

Give up Smoking
Some students smoke now. The number of young smokers is increasing.
It is reported that over two-fifths of the students in a certain school smoke, and some of them even steal money to buy cigarettes. This is terrible.
As we all know, smoking is harmful to our health. But it is even more harmful to middle school students than to grown-ups, for it does great harm not only to their health but also to their mind.
Middle school students are future builders of our country. They should study hard and make progress every day and make up their minds to give up smoking.
