What does the US Constitution mean to me?

The constitution is part of our everyday lives in 2021. Just waking up
and going to the school we choose exercises our constitutional rights.
Riding your bike down the street exercises our right of freedom of
movement. Every day we use these rights without knowing it, but because
of September 17, we get to recognize how we got to this point in our

The constitution acted as a huge merger, it united a group of states
with different interests and cultures. Under the first national government,
the United States thrived and got us to the point where we are today.

To me, the constitution is a representation of freedom and equal
chances for everyone who lives in America. Most kids don't pay attention to
why they can play sports or why they can go to school, but it's all due to the
constitution and the rights it gives us.

Living in Townsend Montana you have a great opportunity to exercise
your right of movement and your right to keep and bear arms. I hunt a lot
so the right to keep and bear arms is essential to having a good time and
hunting in the Montana mountains.

Overall the constitution is a sign of freedom and a representation that
everyone is equal in America, and that these rights can never be taken
away from you.
