We the People of the United States,
(WE THE PEOPLE: ALL citizens of the United States of America whether they be red, white, black, blue, yellow, green, or polka-dotted.)
in order to form a more perfect Union,
(PERFECT UNION: Pulling together all of the individual citizens of the United States of America to hopefully accomplish good things for all of We The People.)
(JUSTICE: Laws, rules, regulations, and amendments as established by our Founding Fathers and updated by We The People’s voted Representatives. These Representatives are to be expressing and fighting for the ideals of We The People and not their personal advances.)
insure domestic Tranquility,
(polka-dotted TRANQUILITY: Having lived through the 1960’s Vietnam issues, 1970’s personal rights issues, and other various issues that threatened to tear the United States of America apart; I have never been more afraid of this coming to pass than now in 2020. The Constitution was created to put no individual citizen any higher than another. It was created to stop a dictatorship, empire, or any other form of government that would believe itself better than We The People and putting all citizens into disruption and civil war.)
provide for the common defense,
(DEFENCE: We The People are taxed to provide for our defenders and defense systems. Those monies must not be taken away from our Service Personel or their means to defend our freedoms and way of life.)
promote the general Welfare,
and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity,
(LIBERTY:the quality or state of being free: the positive enjoyment of various social, political, or economic rights and privileges: a right or immunity enjoyed by prescription or by grant : PRIVILEGE. This definition was drawn from Merriam-Webster online and helped me to obtain a greater understanding of our Constitution. It was designed to ensure that We The People have and keep our hard-earned Liberties. The Founding Fathers even took it so far as to write down specific details to uphold those Liberties. Details we MUST abide by to remain a free nation.)
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
(CONSTITUTION: a written instrument embodying the rules of a political or social organization: the basic principles and laws of a nation, state, or social group that determine the powers and duties of the government and guarantee certain rights to the people in it.)
I love my family, my friends, and my country. My wish for 2020 is that we can all come back together as We The People. I also wish that we all remember who we are, where we came from, and that we should treat others as we would treat ourselves.
