Constitution Day

On September 17th, 1787, 39 men signed a document of great importance: the United States Constitution. 223 years later, that piece of paper still governs our nation.

"…when you assemble a number of men to
have the advantage of their joint
wisdom, you inevitably assemble with
those men, all their prejudices, their
passions, their errors of opinion,
their local interests, and their
selfish views." Benjamin Franklin, September 17, 1787

Not much different today, is it?
