It is sad but true that millions of children live below poverty line in America, despite indications of economic recovery and growth in USA. And the recent survey reveals the numbers to have increased. What is even more alarming is that these numbers perhaps only reflect the tip of the iceberg.
Too many young children and the youth of Americans go to bed with empty stomachs. Their mornings are filled up with school problems, dismal futures, unemployment, health issues, drugs and violence. These disadvantaged children are more likely to suffer poor health due to malnourishment. A majority of them will never finish high school.
