Constitution Day 2014

I’ve yet to hear mention on the news today that today is Constitution Day, otherwise known as Citizenship Day.  Hopefully it is still discussed in our schools.

Our Constitution remains one of the most succinct documents of its type and despite being written centuries ago, it continues to hold the guiding principles that have made the United States great.  That’s why it is disheartening when our leaders, those sworn to uphold it, disparage it.  The most notable case of this that jumps to mind is Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s comment during the reorganization of Egypt that, “I would not look to the US constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.” 

Take a moment today to remember the 39 brave men who signed that document in 1787.  Their courage and commitment should be celebrated.
