Constitution Day falls on 17th September, the anniversary of the official signing of the US constitution in 1787. The document stood as the result of tireless work and compromise between the delegates of the Constitutional Convention – basically to bring about an agreement between the states which would allow a central government the power to enforce its decisions and allow the USA to stand as an international force, while maintaining a reasonable level of independence within the separate states.
Of course, to this day the constitution of 1787 has formed the basis
for the development and running of the USA as we know it, priding itself
on its roots in democracy, rights and the social contract. Certainly
some aspects of the constitution have been contested over the years as
attitudes change over time – key issues including slavery and women in
employment, while the core elements have remained. #HoogasianFlowers
