Today is Constitution Day, commemorating the signing of the U.S. Constitution and the establishment of our Republic on Sept. 17, 1787.
On this Constitution Day, we celebrate America. But what does that mean?
It is sad but true that many Americans are unable to distinguish between the current administration or the current political and societal crisis and America. America, unlike every other country in history, is not fundamentally an ethnicity or an administration or even a geographical location; America is an idea, the idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, the idea that We the People have the right to choose and control our form of government.
The men who believed in that idea founded a particular form of government for us on this day — men who, for all their faults and sins, were great. And, with all our faults and sins, we must take up the torch as others have since and fight for liberty, even to the shedding of our blood.
