September 17, 1787…that was the day that the U.S. Constitution was signed. 39 men took ink to paper on that day. The foundation of this great nation was set.

I wonder if our Founding Fathers knew how revolutionary their ideals were. Would they be surprised to find that the Constitution stills endures, though many times people have tried to weaken in? It still amazes me how they were able to construct a basis for government and rule so different than anything going on in the 1700s.
Spend a little time today pondering the principles and rights set forth in the Constitution. If you’d like to learn more about Constitution Day, check out this flash presentation put together by the Bill of Rights Institute:
