Constitution Day?

So I just heard on the radio that tomorrow is Constitution Day. Yeah, like the US Constitution. And in honor of said day, President Bush encourages all Americans to stop what they're doing tomorrow at 1pm and recite the Pre-amble to the Constitution.

For real?!

Do people actually know the pre-amble to the Constitution?! All I know is "We the people, in order to form a more perfect union...."

Todd knows most of it, but that's only because of School House Rock - anybody remember that? I doubt most of the under-25 readers will....

So I'm doing a survey.....how many of you reading this blog can actually recite the pre-amble to the Constitution?

I'm waiting to be impressed.....and I hope to hear you doing your patriotic duty at 1pm tomorrow!!

Well... I only know the first line... But I vividly remember my 7th grade year when we had to say it in front of the whole class. I knew it like the back of my hand. My best friend at the time had a hard time though. We could do it 3 times before we failed. And well on her third time she finally go through it without cracking up half way through. And by the way I'm 23 and I remember school house rock!
