Today marks the 232nd anniversary of the day the U.S Constitution was adopted and signed.  “We The People” at FTC celebrate this wondrous day! May it be a continual reminder for liberty and justice for all, to resound across the land!

In these whirlwind days of Fall 2019, there is so much going on everywhere that it is important to pause and assess many of the things we all take for granted. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness form the initial foundational elements of the U. S. Constitution and as citizens of this amazing country, we must always take time to be thankful of where we are and how we go about our lives.

The U. S. Constitution begins with:

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.

There were 39 Founding Fathers who bravely and unanimously executed the most important official document for our country.

According to Constitution Day.com:

On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in our nation’s history by attending local events in your area. Celebrate Constitution Day through activities, learning, parades and demonstrations of our Love for the United States of America and the Blessings of Freedom Our Founding Fathers secured for us. https://www.constitutionday.com/

And, so, let’s reflect upon the major principles of the U.S. Constitution today and be thankful.
