This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. America has an ENORMOUS problem that most of us don’t know we have. We’ve heard about this problem, but we don’t think it’s impacting “us” individually. We have a very simple, but not so easy way to fix this problem. But, if we all act collectively, we could literally change the course of America.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
