Hi, Lisa -- I was not aware of that -- thanks for the info.  I would encourage everyone to read a copy of the Constitution.  It is an amazing document that was way ahead of its time.  Have a great weekend, Eric ^0-0^

Good day to honor it and quit threatening to amend it to feed into prejudices and bigotry.

Good morning Mark, Joan, Bud & Beth, Eric and Leslie!

Thank you for stopping and commenting on Constitution / Citizenship Day.  I feel we are so blessed to be American Citizens, while so many are still fighting for basic human rights and freedoms.
