“We the People … “

Here’s your assignment: Memorize the Preamble to the Constitution.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

September 16 is Constitution Day, so I think it would be nice if We the Posterity said the Preamble together. Noon—if that works for you. But anytime is fine.

I was never good at memorizing things, so I will use my standard procedure and write it out in longhand (there’s a quaint old-fashioned word for you—kind of like posterity) over and over again until I can say it from memory.
