Constitution Day

The Constitution of the United States of America graphic."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 this Constitution for the United States of America."

Those words are familiar to most Americans as the Preamble to our Constitution. We all take pride in the United States as a nation of laws, but also of individual rights and liberty.

This day gives us a special opportunity to remember and recognize our heritage, to think about the "blessings of liberty" and about what they demand of us in return as responsible citizens. Constitution Day commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. This Constitution Day web page provides some resources on the history and meaning of the Constitution. We hope it will help you find information and inspiration.
