Remember our traditions in Constitution Week

MILLEDGEVILLE — On Sept. 17, 1787, the Constitution was signed by 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Many patriots fought and died for this event, and for 225 years, the signing of this document has ensured that we are a free nation.

In August 1956, President Eisenhower signed Public Law No. 915 designating the week of Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week. This law was petitioned by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. This organization emphasizes our responsibilities for protecting this document, informs the people of our great heritage and encourages the study of historical events.

As we remember this event, let’s continue to educate our children of its meaning, flying our flags, honoring our service men and women today and remembering those who have served in years past.

Let’s carry on this great American heritage. Many countries do not have this privilege.
