Yesterday, December 15, 2019, was Bill of Rights Day! I was semi-astonished when I didn’t find anyone making reference to this. I was busily recovering from a long walk without a coat taken on Saturday.

Commit Freedom To Memory by Michael Romani December 15, 1791 The Bill of Rights In its guarantee begun To strike a pose of lights Not a place in this world Has failed to feel it's influence With freedom's flag unfurled God's truth found its confluence Establishing the People As overseers of government Our birth right under the steeple Natural law embodied as the Lord meant Fundamental principles to live by Never blurred in their distinction But rules by which we breath and die Without which is our nation's extinction There are limits to power That we might live under rule of law American sentiments in our finest hour Each of these worthy of recall Commit these to memory And then we can begin To acknowledge God in our history From time to time, now and then (c) December 15, 2019 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
