Sunday is Constitution Day. 236 ago on September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, delegates from 11 states signed the newly drafted Constitution establishing the United States of America as a Republic. George Washington and James Madison both used the word miracle to describe how this durable rule-of-law document came to be. Shortly thereafter the constitution went to the states for ratification, which happened in 1789.
Our Constitution is certainly worth a day of recognition. Why not take some time as a family to talk about how the Constitution came to be and the men who made it happen, including Benjamin Franklin who suggested each day’s session begin with prayer led by a local pastor? Our history is rich! Sharing it with the next generation is a great way to preserve it!
