Guy Fox Day

No, I am not English, but I do celebrate Guy Fox Day (November 5) to some degree. Every Fourth of July and Guy Fox Day, I read the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. These are two very important documents that every American should be familiar with. This is a tradition I thought about after 9/11, and started after the US invaded Iraq. I read these two documents, pausing from time to time to think about how certain parts affect Americans as a whole and myself as an individual. When I have kids, this is one tradition that I will pass on to them.
I challenge everyone to read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution at least once a year.
