In 1787, on this day, September 17, our forefathers signed the Constitution. I don’t care what your politics are, but this is a day ALL Americans should celebrate.
For your reading pleasure, here is the Preamble of the Constitution:
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.

I hope you’ll take a few minutes today to celebrate the document that started our government and should still be followed today.
Happy Constitution Day!
