**Today, September 17th, is Constitution Day! September 17th, 2021 marks the 234th anniversary of the signing of the most influential  document in American History: the United States Constitution.  Although the Constitutional Convention was originally convened for  the purpose of amending the Articles of Confederation, delegates  determined that a new form of government was necessary,  unanimously electing George Washington President of the  Constitutional Convention and working to develop a blueprint for the  American Government that would “form a more perfect union.” The  new government would balance the interests of both the states and  the nation, while also limiting the power of government and protecting  individual rights. On September 17, 1787 the Constitution was signed  and sent to the states for ratification. In 2004 the United States  Congress passed a law designating September 17th as Constitution  Day and Citizenship Day encouraging Americans to learn about this  important document and the rights and responsibilities of all citizens.  Please take some time today to investigate the US Constitution, which  has served as a blueprint of not only the US government, but limited  governments around the globe. 

That’s all the news for today. Have a fabulous Friday, Linganore!
