If you visit the National Archives in our nation’s capital, you can
view the original Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The writing is
faded making it difficult, if not impossible, to read in the dim lit
The Constitution is the frame, our skeletal structure. The Bill of
Rights gives us our sight, our ability to feel, to reach out and
touch; it’s our hearing and our heart. Without the Bill of Rights we
are but raw intelligence, drifting at sea without a sail.
Listen now, to the words of our beloved Ten Amendments, our Bill of Rights.
