225th Anniversary of the US Constitution with David Schultz
Can the US Constitution written in 1787 guide us in solving the problems we face in 2012? This September we are celebrating the 225th anniversary of its ratification. Two meetings were held on September 13th and 20th at the Woodbury Public Library Gallery room where those attending examined the basic aspects of our federal constitution.
After an introduction by the workshop facilitator attendees shared their own experiences, interests, and concerns regarding the history of our Founding era as compared to contemporary life. We then turned to a consideration of how we might apply this understanding to solving our modern life concerns: unemployment, the high cost of energy and food, our crumbling roads and bridges, and our diminished hope for a better life for our children and grandchildren.
Due to the lively interest of those attending, additional meetings are scheduled for October 11th from 3 to 5 pm and October 25th from 7 to 8:30 pm. Each meeting will focus on how we might apply the US Constitution in solving one specific modern life concern such as high unemployment or the ever-increasing cost of energy.
