Good time to review the Constitution

Sept. 17-23 is "Constitution Week" -- the annual commemoration of the signing of the United States Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787.

It's a good time for a fresh review of this brilliant and enduring document which guides our government and safeguards our individual freedoms. The brief text (only 4,440 words) can be read at the government website:

Our Constitution is not about a ruling few granting token rights to us; it's about us limiting and directing the power of the few government officials we've elected to serve us. "We the people" need to know our power and rights. "We the people" are the guardians of our Constitution and the liberty it gives us.
