 Special Events:

     Did you know that you have rights? The Constitution says you do. And so do I. I believe that until proven guilty, every man, woman, and child in this country is innocent. Which is why it’s so important to celebrate Constitution Week!  

      Starting today, the news will be covering this great founding document and all it entails. From “We the people” to the 39 signatures, the words that shaped the nation are important- without them, we would have no structure! The constitution says: 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, 

that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, 

that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

     The constitution lays out everything we know. It tells us how the three branches are to be structured, and what those branches can and cannot do. It tells us how to handle power, and who gets the power. The very foundation of our democracy is laid out within these documents.  

     So, celebrate! Have great joy and know the great prosperity that these documents bring us each and every day. These documents may not be perfect, but the founding fathers knew this, which is why they aimed only to “form a more perfect union.” Make sure you tune in every day to hear more about the framework of our nation! 

    North Port works, North Port wins, as always, I’m your host Kevyn Dufresne, and have a  terrific Thursday GO BOBCATS!
