By the way, let's remember why it's Constitution Day: in 1787, the writers of the Constitution finally agreed on and signed a final copy of the plan for government. The writers, who were actually delegates to a meeting called the Constitutional Convention, had spent the entire summer arguing about what should be included in America's plan for government. It was a hot, sticky summer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and many other brilliant political minds argued until they could agree on the Constitution.
What a coincidence: I'm in Philadelphia now. I left after school and I'm visiting my friends. We'll go to a Phillies game tomorrow and I'll be back in New York City by Sunday night. I'll post more tomorrow. See you Monday!
