NATIONAL CONSTITUTION DAY CELEBRATION

All America will unite in the simultaneous recitation of the Preamble to the US Constitution all over the world on September 16,2005 by schools and the military at home and overseas. Our website (www.constitutionday.com) will feature a short 3-5 minute film to be downloaded and played at exactly 11AM on the West Coast and 2PM on the East Coast. The Preamble will be lead by General Tommy Franks via our film and this year the celebration will be dedicated to the military. Television and Radio stations are urged to do a simultaneous broadcast. Those who pledge to broadcast will immediately be put on our website list for schools and the military to reference all over the country. Newspapers are also urged to promote this event locally and to print the Preamble on September 16, 2005. Constitution Day, Inc. and its founder Louise Leigh have celebrated Constitution Day for the past eight years. The Preamble has previously been led by President George Bush, Sr., US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama Roy Moore, and Governor of Pennsylvania, Edward Rendell. President George W. Bush signed into law on December 8, 2004, Public Law 108-447, which established September 17th as Constitution Day, and requests an educational program in all federally funded institutions. This will be a FIRST international simultaneous recitation of the Preamble to the US Constitution in American history. BE A PART OF IT!
