Constitution Day salutes the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by our founding fathers on September 17, 1787. It recognizes that all who are born in the U.S. or by naturalization, are citizens of the United States of America.

While forming the basis for all U.S. laws, this carefully written living document distributes power between the three branches of government.

  1. Executive
  2. Legislative
  3. Judicial

Wrote to prevent the abuses of power they felt subjected to under the British monarchy, the Constitution outlines the government’s powers, the limitations of those powers, and the rights of its citizens. It also outlines an amendment process for making changes in the future.

The Constitution outlines the responsibilities and powers of the judicial, executive branches, how the President is elected, and other details.

The importance of the Constitution makes it the most influential document in the history of the U.S. of America. Life, liberty, and property become lost when the powers to carry them out become moot when forgotten or not exercised.

Veterans, police officers, judges, and elected Government officials are sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of America. As far as I know, we have never been unsworn.

New laws, mandates, policies, and edicts are written that infringe on a person’s constitutional rights all the time. Only through a lengthy judicial process can a citizen whose constitutional rights have been violated, be righted. Citizens must continue to be knowledgeable in the rights afforded to them by the U.S. Constitution. We must not be deprived of the fundamental rights afforded to us by the Constitution.

This is why we must read and understand our Constitution. May it never be forgotten…..
