226 Years ago today

September 17, 2013

Today is Constitution Day - 226th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution -- the oldest written constitution in operation in the world.
Sad will be the day when the American people forget their traditions and their history, and no longer remember that the country they love, the institutions they cherish, and the freedom they hope to preserve, were born from the throes of armed resistance to tyranny and nursed in the rugged arms of fearless men.
~~ Roger Sherman, signer of the Declaration of Independence
