September 17 is the anniversary of the signing of the Constitution by our Founding Fathers. Signed in 1787, and ratified in 1789, the Constitution is the oldest - and shortest - Constitution in effect in the world. And, if I may say so, the best.

Through the Constitution, we established a written rule of law. We embodied the revolutionary concepts of checks and balances, separation of powers, federalism, judicial review, elimination of nobility, civilian rule over the military, republican government, and many more advances.

Although the Founding Fathers were far from perfect, they certainly helped perfect the world.

Let us all spend a moment and give thanks to God that we have blessed with the Constitution.
