Constitution Day

I am not a big fan of birthdays and could do without all the celebration. Every year that I can remember, my birthday falls the day before Constitution Day. I sometimes think which is more important or which should be celebrated more. I kind of think of it like Freedom or Birthday? I would rather have my freedom than celebrate my birthday. So with that in mind, have a Happy Constitution Day. May we all continue to enjoy the freedom that we have. May we be able to repel the attack on the freedom of religion, the freedom to bear arms and any other freedoms that may come under attack? John Adams had some thoughts on the subject as well:

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” ~John Adams October 11, 1798

May I live another year longer to see another Happy Constitution Day and may the Constitution be safe for another year. I pray that the same will be afforded to my children and grandchildren as well.
