September 17th, 1787 is one of the most important and celebratory days in American history!
A group of patriotic individuals dared to say that humans should be guaranteed liberty, certain unalienable rights, and freedom. These individuals believed in these truths so strongly that they would fight for those rights or die in the process. And fight they did!
After a long and hard-fought battle to establish an independent and free country, a victorious nation began the solemn task of building their new country. Building on those very ideals they had fought for – freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to bear arms, establishing 3 distinct separations of power, and to guarantee that no more would a tyrannical government rule over them.
The nation had sacrificed much, fought for freedom, and many had indeed paid the ultimate sacrifice to finally reach this very day. On September 17th, 1787 an incredible and momentous document was presented to this newborn nation – the Constitution of the United States of America!
Each year Manuel & Thompson, P.A participates in Constitution Day. From promoting the day on social media platforms to providing pocket constitutions for children in classrooms the goal is to educate and to celebrate the anniversary of the Constitution.
“You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom, I hope you will make good use of it.”
– John Adams
