Today, we celebrate the founding of our nation and all that founding promised in the Declaration,
We the People . . . 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 foe the United States of America.
As we celebrate let us remember the expectations of that promise and reflect on the part we play in making them a reality. Let us not forget that we also are the People.
