Constitution Day message from Janine Hansen

"Dear Friends,

"Today, September 17, is Constitution Day. We commemorate the signing of the Constitution 223 years ago today.  How blessed this nation has been because of those who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.”

"Then having risked their blood they started us on the grandest experiment of liberty in history…the Constitution of the United States of America .

"In Article VII of the Constitution our Founders made a very important declaration that is often overlooked.  They recognized the Lord of this Land, the author of our Liberty when they said, “Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven…” 

"Alexis de Tocqueville said, “ America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.”


"Let us all remember this day to whom we owe our liberties.


"With that clearly in mind we must then pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to rekindle the spirit of liberty in our blessed land."
