Tuesday's Tribute...

Constitution Pledge
I, as one of the "We, the People of the United States," affirm that I have read (or will read) our U.S. Constitution and pledge to maintain and promote its standard of liberty for Myself and for our Posterity and do hereby attest to that by my signature.

"If , to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work? Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair. The event is in the hand of God."
(Stated to delegates to the Constitutional Convention)

Wow...
I'm impressed!! Love the quote...don't you just love how they talked (or wrote)? So full of feeling and meaning...

Words are so important. I have said that to my wife porobably 200 times since we've been together and I get the same eyeroll every time.

Loved the post, Mel.

George slept in a lot of places around here, supposedly. The building I work in is a restored barn that was built in the 1700's. Maybe George's horse slept there, since it is about 1/2 mile from where the troops made the famous Christmas Evening Delaware River crossing for the Battle of Trenton.

I really should read that Constitution.
