Celebrate Constitution Day

-A A +A
By Ralph Damiani

One of our least known – and perhaps most important – holidays came and went with probably most of us not even recognizing it.

Wednesday was Constitution Day, a celebration of the date of Sept. 17, 1787, when the U.S. Constitution was signed by 39 enlightened men who changed the course of history.

Constitution Day is a time for us to continue their legacy and develop habits of citizenship in a new generation.

Constitution Day is a day when schools are encouraged to teach students about the Constitution. And there is not much more important than our constitution and the history around it.

The U.S. Constitution is one of the most influential legal documents in existence. Since its creation some 221 years ago, more than 100 countries around the world have used it as a model.

And it is a living document, one of the world’s oldest surviving constitutions. And, while the Supreme Court continually interprets the Constitution so as to reflect a rapidly changing world, its basic tenets have remained virtually unchanged since its inception.

You will see people arguing over its interpretation, but never do they question the wisdom of its underlying principles.

To understand the brilliance of these men, they created a document that governs their grandchildren’s grandchildren’s grandchildren!
