National parks in the news

They belong to you, me, and every citizen of the United States.

I'm talking about the national parks.

Award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns is debuting his new series Sunday on PBS.

He joined Fredricka Whitfield from Washington to tell us about his documentary.

    Its proubly a good idea to take all pictures and make all the movies we can while we still have wild life to see. these moments captured in history may be the only memorys left in history.

    In perspective what I write kinda involves parks& recreation. $35.000.000.000, that is a big number. May I be blunt? It does not matter where the money is going to come from! We are still paying for it, you slice and dice it any way that you want and it's going to come out the same., We are being ripped off by this goverment. I thought We got rid of the Kings & Queens,rulers,and dictators when We left England, 1776 or somwhere around that date we gained our independents,now We are losing it .

    Great, Beautiful, and it'll all be blown to shreds if we let moronic would-be he-men tote their guns in....these places are a sanctuary, not someplace you can take a seceret potshot at an endangered species. Idiots and Nature don't mix

    I think Ken Burns PBS special should be required education in every middle and high school in this country! What a treasure and many of our children aren't even aware of what is in our back yard!
