Thoughts on how an ordinary citizen can make a difference by strengthening faith in God, family, and country.
Declaration of Independence
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Save the Constitution
The organization called "As A Mom - a Sisterhood of Mommy Patriots" is encouraging all Americans to save the Constitution by reading it and encouraging other people to read it. Linked to their introductory page are several items that I found to be very interesting. One of those items is produced by the University of Chicago and is called the Founders Constitution . Another item is a paper listing twenty Principles of Constitutional Construction . A third item is US Constitution - Searchable and Annotated . There is much more information in these items than I can possibly pass on to you. They not only provide a copy of the United States Constitution to read, but they also give additional information. I encourage all of you to study the Constitution of our great nation and inform yourselves as to what the Supreme Law of our land says.
I am a grandmother who is concerned about the direction our country and world are headed and what my grandchildren will inherit. I want to do my part to bring peace on earth and sanity to our insane world.
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
