Constitution Day/Citizenship Day

"Many Americans think of the Constitution as words on paper preserved under glass at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. But the Constitution is also the product of an ongoing conversation among Americans about the meaning of freedom in their daily lives. ...For the Constitution to have meaning, it must be not only the words we recite, but also the words we live by." The Words We Live By, Linda R. Monk

    Thanks for the reminder.

    Many have fought to preserve the Constution and to defend the liberties illustrated by the Bill of Rights.

    It is ironic that some in Washington are ignoring the Constitution and are eroding those liberties.

    Who stands for the Constitution?
