Speaking of which, I have a close friend that took her citizenship test as a young adult after having attended American public schools. Her mother took the test the same day without having attended American public schools. You guessed it- mother passed and daughter didn't!

Lisa, interesting!     As an American born citizen, we don't think of this, but am working with several foreign families right now, and pretty sure they know this date!

I can honestly say that I was unaware of this. It seems like there are so many National days and months that it is difficult to keep up with them all.

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.
