Happy Birthday America

September 17, 1787 was the date the Constitution was signed by the people for the people. Even though July 4th*, 1776 is the emancipation from British rule, I consider 9/17 to be the real start of this country.

It’s also my 28th anniversary rotating around the sun. Coincidence?
