    Today September 17th is when the Constitution is to be celebrated and it also is supposed to be a day the Constitution is to be taught in all public schools. How many people even know of this day set aside for the recognition of the Constitution let alone be taught in the schools this day? How many flags are not flying today to celebrate and honor this day?

    I guess the reason most people don't know about this day is because our government doesn't want people making a fuss or learning what unconstitutional acts are being committed. Our present day government would be turned upside down if the Constitution was followed.

    People think our government has not taken away or infringed on our 2nd amendment rights. Oh really? Then why do I need a license to be armed with a handgun? I can't have a silencer without licensed from the state. A few states don't even allow its citizens to have certain guns or ammo even in their homes let alone off their property. Politicians and wealthy people pushing to totally remove the 2nd nationwide.
    Ask your school age children if today they had any recognition in their schools of this day.

    .....then again, Constitution Day has only been recognized for 11 years (created in 2004). Hardly long enough for any traditions. Before that it was called Citizenship Day.

    According to what I understand any school receiving federal funding is to have programs teaching the Constitution this day. That doesn't sound like it was meant to be a tradition. Seems it was more meant to be an educational observance and understanding of the Constitution so the citizens would know when their government was operating outside of the Constitutional limits.
    I wonder has it ever been acted on or has it been just another never administered legislation by politicians?
    Ignorance of the Constitution can be very costly as we are seeing now. The Supreme Court has all but rewritten or interpreted it according to the desires of a few.
    I guess my title should have been Constitution day hidden from public acknowledgement.
