The Power of Freedom: National Constitution Center

The United States Constitution is the foundation for the most fundamental rights of Americans and an inspiring masterpiece of government, literature, law, history, philosophy and theology.

There is a museum, which opened on July 4, 2003, dedicated to the ideas and ideals that formed America, changed the world and continue to influence people everywhere.
"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
The National Constitution Center was created by an act of Congress and is in Philadelphia, sitting alongside Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The museum allows visitors to observe an award winning performance of Freedom Rising which is a multi media theatrical event in the round featuring live acting, experience over 100 interactive exhibits, simulate the oath of the presidential office, observe the 39 signers of the constitution cast in life size bronze, interact with the signers and the evolution of the constitutional experience and decide a supreme court case.

This museum reminds us of the treasure of America expressed in the United States Constitution which is a living document that upholds and sanctifies freedom, liberty and civil rights.
