The United States 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.” 

These words, written 227 years ago, are the Preamble to our Constitution. This is Constitution Week, September 17 – 23, celebrating the signing of this important document. Celebrating its 227th birthday, the U.S. Constitution is the oldest constitution still in active use in the world today and is the basic document of our republic, which protects the individual liberties of all citizens through written law. Fly your flag with pride!

Howdy, I wanted to put a word out to honor all of the veterans that have have had the courage and resolve to ACT on their convictions for our freedom, allowing all of us the ability to continue our inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Have a great Veteran's day and know you are supported and appreciated.
{Aunt Sandy, I probably messed up the flow of your blog but I don't think I am allowed to just create a post so I just commented on your last entry. Can you also email me any DAR info so that I may join?}
Happy Day,
