“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.
