Our leaders swear to uphold it, our military to defend it. It is the blueprint for the shape and function of government itself and what defines Americans as Americans. But how many of us truly know our Constitution?

The United States Constitution: A Graphic Adaptation uses the art of illustrated storytelling to breathe life into our nations cornerstone principles. Simply put, it is the most enjoyable and groundbreaking way to read the governing document of the United States. Spirited and visually witty, it roves article by article, amendment by amendment, to get at the meaning, background, and enduring relevance of the law of the land.

What revolutionary ideas made the Constitutions authors dare to cast off centuries of rule by kings and queens? Why do we have an electoral college rather than a popular vote for president and vice president? How did a document that once sanctioned slavery, denied voting rights to women, and turned a blind eye to state governments running roughshod over the liberties of minorities transform into a bulwark of protection for all?

The United States Constitution answers all of these questions. Sure to surprise, challenge, and provoke, it is hands down the most memorable introduction to Americas founding document.

- My two pennies worth:

Knowing my abilities allows me to find ways to work with my disabilities in such a way I can still express what I wish to say.

For example I can't write well, spell all that great, and my grammar at best is like that of someone in 2nd grade. Look at these sentences of mine...

Some forms of disability are not seen, and one of these for me kept the part of me that would have learned all of these little skills over the course of the first 35 years of my life...

And, just due to my wife, and I never giving up on me... Today just 2 years with relearning everything that so many people just take for granted...

I'm just now learning to use to express myself in new ways.

Music has and always will be my first passion for expression. Visual art is next. All of this text sillyness is brand new to me really...

I know I want to express that people in the US need to know our Constitution. I also am aware it can be BORING to take it all in as it is.

So by chance I located someone with a video of someone else who wrote, and also expressed it viually for me.

It's amazing on how much more visual people are than they ever realize.

And, I can reach so many people with music and my artwork... Well I can scan into my PC so I locate other people's content that can express my need to make YOU aware of what it is well we need to know as Americans.

The US Constitution defines who each of us is as people. And, if WE THE PEOPLE don't know what is contained on that document...

How will we ever know what's missing?

Imagine the way we find out something is while in the act of doing something we used to always do as FREE people.

This book I hope will get people interested in learning even more about out most important document the US Consititution.

Many other documents are important don't get me wrong here. This happens to be in my eyes THE MOST IMPORTANT.

And, we as Americans have a duty to know it so as to insure it never is changed while we are not looking.

Don't think it can't or hasn't happened...

I do not accept money, and or gifts for these review/support posts. I ask only for permission to be able to use the content in my efforts. For you see in that ability to use such works I need no other payments.

Knowing I might help one single person is all I need to keep doing what I must do.

Bring a global voice to over 1 billion 600 million people who are disabled. And, over one billion of them are not listed anyplace as being disabled.

They live in the poorest of the poor areas of the world. And, their governments don't even consider them people really. Talk about sad.

And, it will take everyone both the abled bodied and the disabled to be able to bring a global voice to people who are currently in a FORCED ISOLATION.

I know first hand, as I'm a person with disabilities.
