The Constitution

There is much to be loved and appreciated about the United States Constitution, and Heaven, I believe, breathed upon the founding fathers in their pursuit of good government. England was ruled by kings and state bishops but never were there to be such in New England. Christianity was indeed the driving force behind the nation, but no religion was to be mandated. One of the things I appreciate most about the constitution is its God-Awareness and wisdom. Nothing in history had provided the new nation with the idea of a government of, for, and by the people. Sudden and swift suicide seemed certain a decade prior, except to those men willing to die for their cause. Thirteen states united and saw themselves as, "We the people in order to form a more perfect union". Independence had been fought for and obtained, and now it was time to establish a secure government. Their time had come to be a beacon, a city on a hill, and it was time for good principled laws among men. Unity was paramount, but it also required an agreement to disagree when a total agreement was not possible. Tolerance among countrymen of like purposes was far superior to the intolerance and tyranny of Britain. It was now time to put into practice, to implement, to execute and practice their plan before all the world. Optimum care has been implemented, making this document the envy of the world. Navigating and activating this sacred document need never be a constitutional crisis. 07022019PoSoupContest, Another Eight Word Challenge, Kai Michael Neumann. Chosen word: Constitution

Curtis, I like your poem about The Constitution. This important piece brought about by The Founding Fathers, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and George Washington. Poignant now as it ever was. Well done. -Richard
