On September 17, 1787 the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the divinely inspired document they had created – The Constitution of the United States of America.
Did you know?
In Sept 2010, Montpelier’s Center for the Constitution released results of a national survey conducted to gauge knowledge of constitutional principles. Although 79 percent of those surveyed said they understood at least some of the Constitution, only 28 percent of the 988 people surveyed said they have actually read the entire document. In addition, the survey showed that older people know more about the Constitution and are more likely to have read it.
Read about the study here and here. It’s quite enlightening and and also disappointing. Please don’t be part of the uneducated masses; we can make a difference by learning about the Constitution and teaching our families.
