    The constitution is the lifeblood of this nation, our rhyme and reason, our certificate to being American.

    To me, the constitution is not merely a contract, but represents what it means to be part of this great country. The constitution establishes a perfect Union, creating a nation in which we can thrive and be proud. The pages of the constitution grant citizens of the United States freedoms, giving us rights as humans. This manuscript is the heartbeat of our country; it throbs in every American’s heart, it beats in my heart.
