Noting our American Bill of Rights Day

Noting our American Bill of Rights Day December 15, 2014

After years of struggle, James Madison’s wonderful idea to attach a Bill of Rights to the Constitution prevailed. And it was on this day in 1791 the Bill was ratified.

In 1941, marking the 150th anniversary of the ratification, President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared that henceforth December 15 would be celebrated as Bill of Rights Day.

No doubt a flawed document. And on occasion even more flawed in its interpretation…

People were and continue to be involved, after all…


And given the givens a real gift in the establishment of the American Republic.

Something to celebrate…
