Constitution Day

     Last fall when we visited Mt. Rushmore, one of our inexpensive souvenirs was a set of antiqued parchment paper reprints of some of the most famous American documents. One was this copy of our constitution.
     We took turns trying to read it today. The print is tiny. 
This is ours! "We the people!"

     Do you know what is says? Amazon offers this free version of  The United States Constitution for Kindle that is much easier to read than squinting at the tiny script. If you don't have a Kindle, download their free cloud reader and enjoy even more of their free e-books. 

     Maybe, like me, you learned the preamble as a child.

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.

     This morning I sang the Schoolhouse Rock version to my kiddos.
