My Fave? Article III of the Constitution
Maybe that’s an obvious choice for an attorney. Now, please don’t misunderstand, all of the freedoms noted in our venerable Constitution have a special spot in my heart. Tears still swell every time I hear the Star-Spangled Banner. I imagine looking out and seeing our flag still standing proud, even in the midst of a war for our continued independence from Great Britain.
But I am glad that each year we celebrate Constitution Day because it gives me a good excuse to review the grand document.
You don’t have to declare your favorite article or section, but do take a moment to reflect on the freedoms and the wisdom contained in the document with the preamble:
We the people of the United States,
in order to form a more perfect union,
insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare,
and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
