Friends, let me paint a picture for you. Here is a typical day in America—six youths under the age of 20 will commit suicide, 12 children under the age of 20 will die from firearms—remember this is a DAY, not a year—399 kids will be arrested for drug abuse, 1,352 babies will be born to teen mothers. This is happening in one of the richest, most developed countries in the history of the world.

朋友们,让我给大家描述一幅这样的情景,这是美国典型的一天——每一天将有6个不满20岁的青年自杀,12个20岁以下的孩子死于枪击——记住这只是一天,不是一年——另外还有399个少年因为服用毒品而被逮捕,1352个婴儿被十几岁的妈妈生下来,这些都发生在世界上最富有最发达的国家。

Yes, in my country there is an epidemic of violence that parallels no other industrialized nation. These are the ways young people in America express their hurt and their anger. But don't think that there is not the same pain and anguish among their counterparts in the United Kingdom. Studies in this country show that every single hour, three teenagers in the UK inflict harm upon themselves, often by cutting or burning their bodies or taking an overdose. This is how they have chosen to cope with the pain of neglect and emotional agony.

是的,我国所充斥的暴力,其他的工业化国家无法与之相比。这只是美国年轻人宣泄他们的伤痛和愤怒的方式,但是,不要认为英国就不存在有这样痛苦和烦恼的人。种种调查表明英国每小时都会有3个青少年自残,他们通常会割伤或烫伤自己的身体或者服用过量药剂。这是他们所选择的用来发泄被忽视的痛苦和烦恼的方法。

In Britain, as many as 20% of families will only sit down and have dinner together once a year.Once a year! And what about the time-honored tradition of reading your kid a bedtime story?Research from the 1980s showed that children who are read to, had far greater literacy and significantly outperformed their peers at school.

在大不列颠,多达20%的家庭一年只能聚在一起吃一次晚饭,一年才一次!那么给孩子们讲睡前故事的悠久传统又处于一种什么状况呢?20世纪80年代以来的研究表明,听睡前故事的孩子在读写方面远胜过学校的同龄孩子。
