223 Years Ago . . .

. . . this wonderful land we are living in became what is now known as the United States of America. Foundations were set in place for a federal government and its relationship to the states, and also our God-given rights were recognized and codified in a document that continues to be the line in the sand for many Americans, though many seem to have forgotten it.

Here are two sites worth a visit. The first is full of writings on the topic, and perhaps even will help you really introduce the Constitution to your children and broaden their, or even your, understanding of it. It has the full text in several "versions" as well. You can even save it as a PDF. The second is a place that will send you a free pocket copy of the Constitution and Declaration. I strongly encourage everyone to, at the very least, re-familiarize yourself with the content of these two documents.
