The American's Creed
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my Country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies." ~Written by William Tyler Page in 1917, adopted by the US House of Representatives in 1918.

Lord, have mercy on us.
Come and heal our Land.
Cleanse with your fire,
Heal with Your touch
Humbly we bow
and call upon You now,
O Lord, have mercy on us.

Constitution Day!

Many of the teachers in our school were discussing some of the great sites on the web to share with their classes this week about Constitution Day. I hope you don't mind if I share the ones you have posted.

I especially like the American History for Kids site that you have up!
