In case it's been a while since you've read it, you can brush up on it over here.
Naturally, our discussion on the Declaration of Independence led to discussions about the Constitution for the United States of America.
Does your homeschool lessons do that, too? One thing leads to another?
This week, I'm thankful for men like Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and the other men that worked on these documents.
The Declaration of Independence showed us how grounded in faith these men were, how they recognized God and His power, and it's sad to see how far we, as a nation, have came from this!
I'm thankful that the Constitution was made to promote general welfare and to insure domestic tranquility. The amendments allow people to be treated fairly and makes sure the wrong man isn't in office for TOO long!
I just wish we could get back to what once was....
What are you thankful for?
