America is country facing some very big problem. In the United States, there are several problems including downturn on our economy, gay marriage, civil rights, war against drug, risky health factors and some interference with international affairs like US involvement in Syria.

Schools, health administration and parents need to step up and join the forces to help reduce to childhood obesity.
