On September 17, 1787, delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created – a document that defined the supreme law of the United States, established the separation of powers, and safeguarded our most sacred freedoms. Congress later established September 17th as Constitution Day to commemorate the signing and to, “recognize all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become citizens.”
Let’s continue to stand together once again in prayer just as these godly patriots rose up in unity of purpose at the birth of our nation. We encourage all Americans to observe this important day in U.S. history by celebrating Constitution Day in our homes and communities through activities, learning, parades, and other ways of demonstrating love for the country, as well as the blessings of freedom our Founding Fathers secured for us. The Constitution and all it represents is worth fighting for.
