Two hundred and twenty two years ago today, 39 brave souls signed the Constitution and changed the course of our history and world history.
To celebrate today, why not check out the resources on The National Archives. Remember all those lessons many of us slept through as students? Many of them are more meaningful to us as adults who have seen our rights threatened on an almost daily basis. This would be a great day to educate ourselves more about the Constitution and then share that with our children.
And when you’re done learning more, think about supporting the Electronic Frontier Foundation as they continue to lead the way in protecting our hard-won rights.
