I am very interested in Sandra Day O'Connor and her work in the teaching civics in School. To be more pacific I believe that the Web sight is a wonderful for all ages. Being a person that has no credentials to match that of a Supreme Court Justice I am a person who deals with the day to day ignorance and passive sheepal due to the lack of Civic education. I hope Sandra Day O'Connor sees this comment so that she see's that I will be passing the web sight on to every adult I can find an run into so they can learn what is necessary to keep our freedoms that we love so in this country. Thank you Sandra Day O'Connor. Sincerely Yours, Camilian
