Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

We the People...

Today's History Lesson...US Constitution

The document begins We the people of the United States...which is understandably familiar, affirming that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens. What lies in the middle is supreme law delineating our national frame of government. It also has greatly influenced the constitutions of other nations. You live in America. You follow the laws of the nation (lest you end up behind bars) but question is...How much do you really know about the US Constitution?

This Day in History: September 17, 1787

Today marks 227 years since 39 people gathered in a room and signed the United States Constitution, which is the supreme law of the United States of America. It is the oldest written national constitution still in force anywhere in the world. While it is not a "perfect" document, set your mind to the possibility of it not being set in place and by the way, vanquish the Bill of Rights at the same time.

Whether yesterday, today, or tomorrow, celebration of the signing of the United States Constitution is still prevalent. Stop anyone on the street, preferably one of our nation's youth, and ask him or her to name one thing they know about the US Constitution. What about asking someone to name any of the amendments in the Bill of Rights? Hope you won't be disappointed!
