    My 14 year old son sent out a couple hundred emails (individual, not a mass mailing) to senators, the President & Vice-President, principals of a school in each state capital, and some to homeschool families requesting a postcard for his school project. Its been almost 4 weeks and he's only gotten 3 replys. One from the Senator from Mississippi, one from the Vice-President and the third from a Librarian in Michigan. If anyone could help by sending him one we'd surely appreciate it. I hate to see all of his work be such a failure.

    If you would be able to help, his address is: Jordan Richard Hill, 1111 St. Rt. 14, Deerfield, OH 44411
    :thanks:

    What does he need other than a post card? I'm a first-year teacher from Illinois. I teach Junior Kindergarten at a private school, and I'm getting my Master's as a second career in K-8! Can I help you/ your son?

    Any info about Illinois would be greatly appreciated. He's in eighth grade, plays football and basketball. We homeschooled until he went into 7th grade. He loves public school, but misses the extra field trips and hands on stuff we could do while homeschooling. I am hoping that this project will be a success for him. Thanks for your offer to help.

    I know that you are from Ohio, but I am sending your son a postcard with a picture of Cincinnati.
