Happy Constitution Day

On this day, 225 years ago, our 'founding fathers' gathered together to sign the Constitution of the United States of America.  I wonder what they would say to our political climate of today? My students and I previewed a few kid friendly Scholastic News video clips on the Constitution and its beginnings. Have we really strayed that far from its original intent or is it that there are SO many more of us inhabiting this Earth with such diverse interpretations that makes it all seem so complicated now?

Many thanks to those who came together with the intent to provide a model of cooperative statesmanship and the art of compromise for all of us who followed...

In spite of all that is flung around on the political 'news' front, I am grateful to live in a country where I have choices - still....
