Constitution Day 2017

Today is US Constitution Day!  230 years ago the Constitution was signed on this Day.  The incredible thing about our constitution is that it is not dead - it is a LIVING DOCUMENT!!!!  It tells you your rights!  It tells you what the government can and cannot do!  One of my favorite things is Angelina Jolie's neck tattoo:
