A day to celebrate the Constitution
You won’t find a Hallmark card about it, but today, September 17, is the day to celebrate our nation’s Founding Fathers and our fundamental freedoms. It’s Constitution Day, which commemorates the formation and signing of the U.S. Constitution by thirty-nine men on September 17, 1787.
