We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
These words are the Preamble to the United States of America’s Constitution. I thought it was so important for all us to be reminded what these words mean, especially 2 days before our Presidential election.
Let’s break down the words for a moment
Justice – just behavior or treatment
Tranquility – state of being tranquil or calm
Defense – defending from or resisting attack
Welfare – health, happiness and fortunes
Blessings of Liberty – rights and freedom
Posterity – all future generations of people
Now that it has been broken down, let’s put it back together, in a simpler form. We the People need to treat each other in a kind manner, we need to stay calm and resist attacking each other, we need to help and care for each other to insure good health and find happiness in our lives, we have the right to vote for whomever we want and are free to love whomever we want and we 100% need to make sure that we take care of our world for our children and our children’s children!
The United States of America was never intended to be a Blue and Red State of America! We will always have our differences, we are all unique individuals and at the end of the day we should all be able to get along no matter what! Isn’t that what we teach our children? Why does it change when we become adults?
As we count down to Tuesday, November 3rd let’s remember the meaning of the Preamble to the United States Constitution! We can work together to achieve great things for the common good of all people! Let us continue to have faith and use our moral compass to do more good for all! God Bless the United States of America!
“God Bless America, my home sweet home”
