of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union,
insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare,
and secure the blessings of liberty on ourselves and our posterity...
do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.
Many years ago when I taught school, all my students had memorized the Preamble before they left my classroom in June. It cuts to the chase on what it is to be an American. It sums up the Constitution in a mere paragraph. We celebrate our Declaration of Independence...but we live according to the Constitution...great documents, written by great men.
Happy Birthday, America!
Hope you and yours have a wonderful Independence Day! Stay safe!
Enjoy the day,
