30 Signs That America Has Become A Horrible Place For Children
What in the world has happened to the United States? Once upon a time the U.S. was one of the best places in the world to raise a child, but today it is an absolutely horrible place for children. We physically abuse our children at staggering rates, we pump them full of antidepressants and other pharmaceutical drugs and we send them off to public schools that more closely resemble prison camps every single day. Meanwhile, the economic decline of the America is hitting children far harder than it is hitting the adult population. More than one out of every five children in America is living in poverty and one out of every four children is on food stamps. One of the ways that a society is judged is by how it treats its most vulnerable members. As you will see below, the way that children are treated in America today is absolutely shameful.
The following are 30 signs that America has become a horrible place for children….
