Let's Move -- Across the US, childhood obesity has reached epidemic rates and, as a result, for the first time in our nation's history, our children may live shorter lives than their parents. Obesity has been recognized as a problem for decades, but efforts to address this crisis to date have been insufficient. Our First Lady, Michelle Obama has taken on a nationwide initiative to get us all moving, and instill better health habits in the next generation. The bottom line is, we need to get moving. Magic Stream fully supports this effort. Join our First Lady, our community leaders, teachers, doctors, nurses, moms and dads in a nationwide campaign to tackle the challenge of childhood obesity. Letís Move has an ambitious but important goal: to solve the epidemic of childhood obesity within a generation. This one is going to take us all, let's join Mrs. Obama in this effort. We will all feel better for it. Regina Garson, Magic Stream Publisher.
