Cheryl grew up around a household of alcoholics. This led to a life surrounded by alcoholism, loneliness, abuse, addiction and adultery. In her first marriage the abuse was so bad she had to leave.

Are we all naturally greedy? Most of us have all heard the saying "finders keepers" before, but does that always hold true? In this experiment, children are put in a situation where a wallet falls in front of them and they have to make a choice. What do you think they do?
Some of the personality traits we have are genetic. Others are learned, or just not so clear cut. Many people believe that greed may just be a part of life. Red Cross of Japan certainly doesn't think that is true, and they set out to prove it with this simple experiment. They use children to prove a point that we can all give back to those who have lost something. We all learn a very valuable lesson by watching this video.
