Did you know that September 17 marks Constitution Day? Established to acknowledge and honor the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787, it is a day to really reflect on the importance of the rights afforded to U.S. citizens by this critical, historical document.
The power of the preamble to the U.S. Constitution resonates with so many.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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.”
It really gets to the core of what we, as Americans, strive to be. Take the day to think on this. This document sets forth the foundational rights we pride ourselves in America for having. This Constitution Day, consider celebrating one of the most important historical documents our country has. You can do so by:
- Reading the Constitution. While famous, many may not be able to claim they have actually read the very document that grants them foundational rights as a U.S. citizen. Take the day to review the Constitution and make an effort to get into the language and what it means to all of us.
- Read follow-up analysis on the Constitution. The Constitution can be, to say the very least, a lot to unpack. It can be helpful to review some literature regarding the language of the Constitution, its historical implications, as well as what it means in modern times.
- Congratulate a Naturalized U.S. Citizen. Constitution Day is also Citizenship Day. Do you have any friends, family, or loved ones who became naturalized U.S. citizens? The Citizenship test is only one of several hurdles immigrants must overcome in order to become citizens. Congratulate them on this great accomplishment.
