Our Constitution is a citizen's responsibility
By Byron McNutt

OUR REPUBLIC is as much endangered today by the indifference of millions of people, inheritors of the traditions and opportunities of this greatest of all nations, to their own duties and responsibilities, as it is by the activities of the open and secret enemies of American institutions.
This is Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23. Half of our citizens do not take the trouble to vote. Most of the remainder consider their duty to their country discharged when they have cast their ballot and go about their business during the intervals between political campaigns, giving little or no thoughts to the national welfare.

AMEN.

Byron,

This very well could be the finest, most inspirational and passionate message that you've ever composed.

It rivals any column that I've ever read in any publication.

Sure would make a great handout at the high school.

Thank you for it.
