From my point of view, nobody can´t have summed up better the real importance of rules, everybody must obey,no matter who you are a policeman or the best judge.
I am surprised about the great respect that the author of the article reflects in spite of not being an expert in the matter, he recognizes that there are rules everywhere, at school, at home, or when you use a train, you must obey the rules there. Something that I don´t always do, especially when I drive my car.
This article has made me consider if I know the rules as well as I thought I expected .Thanks for this beautiful and interesting article, it has showed me something important.

My name´s Fina and I´m a second year (NB) student of English at Langreo EOI . I´m thirty two years old . I live in siero qith my husband and I work in a school with children with motor problems.I´m very talkative and friendly : I like trekking , going to the conema and travelling very much .What about you?

Last weekend I read your book and I liked it a lot because it´s very funny . My favourite chapter was the one about god.for me god is very special too because my father died and I know that he is in heaven with him. I think we should give thanks to god everyday for all we have. Every Sunday I go to church to listen to the mass because it´s god´s house. There are some very beautiful churches in Spain, like Burgos cathedral.
When I travel I love sightseeing,visiting museums ,churches, gardens...they´re very interesting.Early it will be Christmas time, so I´m going to sing some carols with my family: Fishes in the river,Merry Christmas, Jingle Bells.
