A constitution is an articulated document defining how a group of people have decided they are live by.
May all the people who strive for a life of peace and fairness and opportunity, whether in Mexico, the U.S., or anywhere else int he world, benefit from their own constitution as they originally desired.

Wishing everyone a happy safe 4th of July!
And remembering that for everyone to be happy, no one should impinge or hurt another.
That calls for compromises and lines, as no one person is an island. Just as nations aren’t either, many countries helpful to our own cause for independence.
So, obviously, that’s all easier said than done, as history shows.
But I believe, as long we retain a working faith in our constitution, we will meander are way to what’s fair and appropriate each stage of our journey through time.
Some thing bend. Some things change.
And some things always remain.
In my poetry book featured at the top, what I celebrate is the effort we as a people make, in various professions, to defend our basic rights in our constitution.
I’m not a lawyer, or a constitutional scholar, but no one has to be one to have a meaningful opinion of what “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness“ means.
True, the phrase “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” is from the Declaration of Independence, not the U.S. Constitution, but in my opinion, the latter is a wheel without an axle without the former.
You can still roll it, but it ain’t gonna steer very well.
Comparing the two documents though, is interesting, and here’s a google search link with some potentially fun reading.
Best wishes everyone!
