December 15th Bill of Rights Day

On March 9th, 1789 the Constitution of the United States was ratified by Congress. It seems like the day after, the Founding Fathers began to think about things they did not include in the Constitution that maybe they should have. So they began to make amendments to the constitution, considered the Bill of Rights, that applied to everyone in the country. The first amendments were made on September 25th, 1789. Originally there were twelve amendments proposed but only ten of the twelve were added to the constitution. There have been more and more amendments added since then, always with deep thought and consideration before being added. There will probably be more as time moves on. Today we celebrate that document, and those added later on, making us who we are.

How to celebrate – Read the Amendments to the Constitution. Read the Amendments that have been proposed but not added. Think up what Amendments you might add to the Constitution.
