Rep. Foxx on 222nd Anniversary of Constitution
WASHINGTON, D.C. Sept. 17, 2009 Today is the 222nd anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution, also known as Constitution Day. U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx made the following statement
on the occasion of Constitution Day:
“More than two centuries ago 39 patriots put their names to a document that changed the course of history. This document chartered a lasting experiment in democracy and put our nation on the path to becoming the world’s strongest and freest democracy.
“Our Constitution remains the foundation of our unique system of government and individual liberty. It is a resilient and timeless charter. It is a towering achievement in the cause of freedom. It is, above all, a monument to America’s founding ideals.
“As a member of Congress it is an honor and sacred duty to protect and uphold the Constitution. I hope that many Americans will find the time this week to read our Constitution and be reminded of our many freedoms, of the genius of checks and balances and of the privilege it is to be an American.”
Note: The Constitution can be read Constitution onlineat the National Archives’ web site. Any 5th District constituent who would like a hard copy of the U.S. Constitution can contact Foxx’s office at (866) 677-8968.
