Do You know what today is??

I'll give you a hint.
It's something every American should hold near and dear to their heart. But sadly, most have never read it.

Today is Constitution Day!

Grab a pocket Constitution. Read, learn and educate yourself and your family.

"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction." ~Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson was wise, ahead of his times it seems, for his quote is even more meaningful today.

Absolutely, Mary.

Sad but I did not know that.
Even sadder that the leaders of today in no way compare to our founding fathers.
In fact, I think they would be quite disappointed in our government and their continuing efforts to distroy our constitutional rights. Of course, that is only my opinion. ;)

I have my pocket constitution. I pray daily that freedom is restored to this nation and a sense of patriotism is revived.

Our country has two clear paths we can take.
I just pray Americans have the common sense to know which path will help save our republic.
