Celebrate Constitution Day & Constitution Week

“We, the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish the Constitution of the United States of America.” ~The Preamble to the Constitution

On September 17, 1787, the delegates of the Constitutional Convention changed the course of American history – they signed the Constitution of the United States of America. This year marks the Constitution’s 225th anniversary! The Constitution has been called miraculous, revolutionary, unprecedented, all that and more. With it, our Founding Fathers created a free nation, a country governed by the people in a way never seen before. This whole week is designated as Constitution Week. It’s a good time for citizens of all ages to review the principles upon which our country was founded.

“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.” ~Samuel Adams
