In 10 minutes some very disturbing things will happen to America's youth:

Fact: 10 kids will attempt suicide.
Fact: 105 kids will quit school.
Fact: 615 high school senior will smoke marijuana.
Fact: 20 girls between the ages of 15-19 will become pregnant.
Fact: 5 of those girls will give birth to illegitimate babies.
Fact: 8 of those girls will have abortions.

These numbers have become, quite literally, a national crime. Children and youths ages 12 to 20 constitute 57 percent of all serious arrests made in America. And the problem is getting worse.
