I believe you betray your own bias when you entitle one of the sections of this exhibit "Repairing the Constitution." Something needs to be repaired only if it is broken. By definition, we do not at any time have a Constitution that is broken; We have only a Constitution that may be improved.

I always believed myself to be a fair and just man. Though the fear of Sept. 11 that our country can so easily be treasoned upon from right here on the inside due to our just principles of allowing all people of the world experience the beauty of America first hand, has really put my rightousness to the test. The fear I experienced showed me that I didn't fully understand the simple complexities and the beuties of our Constituition. At first I was one of those crazies that said, hey, start the round up if major attacks continue to happen. What I left behind on Sept. 10 was, we as human beings we are all individuals. And many of us are wonderful, moral, and patriotic individuals. And that no matter who your neighbor is Muslim, Jewish, Christian, Buhdist, white, black, yellow it doesn't matter. Were all Americans. This gallery of the Japanese Americans hardships and struggles during WWII, before and there-after really compacted the ideology in my own reasoning that all Americans are Americans, who under the just writings of the Constituition have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of justice. Thank you for lesson and even more importanty the Awakening.

So, the NORTH Americans start to think in terms of equality and freedom. Let's see if that noble principles will survive the fear of the strange an foreing, and will prevail for EVERY one, not just for the 'right' ones.
Então, esperaremos que esta igualdade possa se espalhar para todos, em todos os níveis, econômicos e sociais.Assim seja!
[Tranlsation from Portugese: Then, we will wait that this equality can be spread for all, in all the levels, economic and social. Thus either!]

EXCELLENT! The site was a great reference and a respectful review for my Father, USMC WWII Pacific Theaters. The ease in which we could follow is a true compliment to the development of the site and the difficulties in design. I'm proud, but my Father is prouder to view this material without commercial, or colors that are difficult on his eyes. EXCELLENT!
