Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Dangers Of Phone Vibration

sometimes the little things we do affect our lives so badly that the end we might end up loosing our lives.I remember a cousin of mine who was used to putting his phone on vibration no matter how many times we warned him.It was too noisy or loud but he ignored the words we told him arguing that if indeed the vibration mode had effect on the body then it would not have have been included as one of the features in the phone.As time went by he realised some pains in his heart and his body sometimes just vibrated even when he had no phone.When he went to the hospital he had developed heart failure and needed immediate treatment.He did not believe it but his life was in danger and had no option but to stop putting the phone in vibration.
