Why We Celebrate Constitution Day
As the fundamental or the Supreme law of the land, The Constitution is our most important guide to the obligations and the limitations of government in America. Constitution Day, September 17, is both an opportunity for celebrating our country’s unique achievement in crafting a written body of fundamental laws for the people’s government and it is also an important reminder of the knowledge necessary for good citizenship. As we know from the Declaration of Independence, the just powers of government are entirely derived from our consent. Constitution Day reminds us of those laws to which we give our consent as members of the body politic.
The Constitution of the United States of America
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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.”
