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, the preamble to the foundation for the judicial system of our country, is perhaps the least understood document in the entire United States of America.
Whether we agree or disagree with the current administration, previous administration, or even the founding fathers, it is imperative that our children have an understanding of the intentions of those who made the United States an organized country.
Employing critical thinking and creating informed solutions to improve the future of the country can only be achieved through study and understanding of the founding documents and how they have (or perhaps have not!) been applied throughout history and in the current time.
Constitution day is Sunday, September 17th (Observed, Monday, September 18th). Grab your free holiday helper with poems, pictures, copywork quotes, and other resources to dive back into history and sit with the founding fathers for a day (or more!).
