Freedom Friday, Happy Constitution Day!

history of the constitution

I have a link under the picture to the history of the Constitution. Take time with your family to ponder it's role in our freedom and what we need to do to uphold it's principles.

A great speech given about the Constitution here

Abraham Lincoln said: "Let [the Constitution] be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling-books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation."

And to that I say, amen!

Thanks for the links! I remember listening to Pres. Benson's talk while sitting in a lounge in the Wilkinson Center, doing homework. It was my first semester at BYU. I just read his speech again--WOW!! And he thought the constitution was in trouble then...The speech was very inspiring, though--made me cry!
