  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    In some ways the Constitution means a lot to me, because without it, I may not be able to be the same person that I am right now.

    Although the whole Constitution gives me certain rights and keeps me free, it is the Constitution’s First Amendment in the Bill of Rights that means the most to me. This is because it gives me my freedom of religion, my freedom of speech, and my freedom of press.

  • Student essay winners; The LaRue County Republican Party sponsored an essay contest: “What the U.S. Constitution Means to Me.”

    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.
