We Heart You, Madam Speaker of the House!!

A great quote from Nancy Pelosi in the Scholastic News for Kids, March 5, 2007 Edition 4:

“When people ask me what are the three most important issues today in Congress, I always say the same thing: our children, our children, our children. Their health, their education, their economic security, their families, their environment...and, of course, a world at peace in which they can thrive.”
