September 17th begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The week-long commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances.
Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those unalienable rights to every American.
The United States of America functions as a Republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self government of a people.
This landmark idea that men had the unalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world.
Every year members of the James Stewart Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution participate in the national celebration Bells Across America by ringing bells at 4:00 pm EST on September 17th so that the bells of freedom will be heard simultaneously from coast to coast.
We would like to invite everyone to join us as we ring our bells!
Mark your calendars and ring your bells for the Constitution of the United States of America. Spread the word! Let Freedom Ring!
