According to Wikipedia, “Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787.”
TeaPartyPatriots.org has several programs to help celebrate and promote the ideas of this great day. One of them is the “Adopt a School” program, which is “designed to help you (i.e. those who promote it) bring our Constitutional heritage back into our public schools”.
Contrast efforts like these to the up coming U.S. Day of Rage. In fairness to this effort, the website proclaims non-violence as one of its core principles. However words such as “war”, “occupy” and “rage” can also be found. There are also tips for dealing with the police and a call to help write a handbook of online civil disobedience.
It will be interesting to see what actually transpires on this day of rage and whether or not the principles of non-violence are adhered to. However, I ask sincerely, if a group is non-violent and wishes to promote ideas of liberty and end tyranny, why not adopt a school on Constitution week?
