We the People

Happy constitution day! Yep, today is the 220th anniversary of the adoption of the United States Constitution , that rather quaint little document that our shrub has been ignoring.

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.

Read it, repeat it, shout it at congress. Whatever it takes. We need to remind our government of that most important phrase "We the People".

You know how I feel- it matters, it really matters.

Thanks for celebrating this day too... important, very important!

I'll drink to that.
