Bill of Rights Day is observed on December fifteenth in the U.S. It’s an important day to celebrate our Constitution. Bill of Rights Day commemorates the ratification of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The Bill was introduced by James Madison, who became our fourth President. Now, The Bill of Rights is displayed in The Rotunda of the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C., as a reminder to all Americans of our constitutional freedoms.
The ten amendments in the Bill of Rights secured existing rights; they didn’t create new ones. For instance, the First Amendment is clearly about the inherent right we have to worship God according to the dictates of our faith, privately and in public, and to not be subject to a state church or religion. And, we have an inherent right to speak and not to speak. Praise God for the Bill of Rights!
