Happy Constitution Day

It's the 222nd birthday of our U.S. Constitution! It was on this day in 1787 that our founding fathers signed one of the most important and enduring documents in history. I have to admit I got a little misty-eyed during some of the videos and books Sport, Spice, and I used in school this afternoon. I think some...no many...no most of our current leaders would do well to spend some time today reading the Constitution and thinking about the ideals this country was founded on so many years ago, but I guess that's a whole different post. So I'll simply leave you with two classic videos we watched today. Enjoy!
