I taught government -- education about demoracy-- in Colorado for 30 years. When I retired I helped to form a non-profit organization, the Center for Education in Law and Democracy, and we provided teacher workshops and student programs in Colorado. Then we were given the opportunity to work with teachers in the newly independent nations following the break-up of the Soviet Union in 1989. Everyone-- no matter where they were from-- learned that democracies are fragile and must be nurtured by every generation-- this is what my entry photograph represents to me.
