Our government here in the United States did not happen over night. People formed their opinions on how the country should be run before the Revolutionary War began, through the war years (1775-1783), and afterwards, until finally having the last constitutional meeting on September 17th, 1787. 2 years later the constitution became the law of the land on March 4th, 1789. They didn’t get everything right but did provide for adjustments, or amendments, to that same constitution. So it is breathing and living as we find better ways to govern ourselves and adjust our form of government as it needs to be adjusted.
How to celebrate – Read the constitution. Be proud to be an American. Learn the amendments made to the constitution.
