The 4th of July and YOU!

4th of July


This 4th of July take some time to think about where we came from in America and where we are going.

Think about how the founding Fathers worked together to in the name of FREEDOM with a common vision.

Ponder the Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Ask yourself…..

  1. What responsibilities do I have as an American citizen?
  2. What can I do to help myself and others?
  3. What does the constitution mean to me and it’s amendments?
  4. How am I making a difference in America?

The Constitution begins:

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.

Did you know that the 1st 10 Amendments are known as the Bill of Rights?

Did you know there are 27 amendments to the US Constitution?

Did you know that the 26th Amendment gave 18 year olds the right to vote in 1971?
