Description
From Gold Star father and beloved Democratic National Convention speaker Khizr Khan comes a book for young people about the Constitution-what it says and why it matters for everyone. a Our Founding Fathers created the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights as a blueprint for American government and the rights of American citizens. This document is not merely a piece of parchment but a living, breathing promise of our deepest democratic values. a Khizr Khan grew up in Pakistan, with few of the fundamental rights that are enshrined in the Constitution. He immigrated to America and became a citizen, raising his family to appreciate and honor all our nation has to offer. He is deeply passionate about the Constitution- the guarantees and protections it provides for each and every person and the beacon of light it shines throughout the world. a This Is Our Constitution is a personal journey that Khizr Khan is taking with our nation's young people. It includes- * An introduction from Khizr Khan that shares his highly personal perspective on the relevance and importance of the Constitution. * A history of how the Constitution was drafted, passed, and amended. * An easy-to-read explanation of exactly what the Constitution and Bill of Rights say. * A passionate argument about why kids should care deeply about the Constitution (with a focus on the 1st and 14th amendments). * Information on some of the key turning points in its interpretation that he considers essential to our understanding of our country. * The complete text of the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and other amendments. a This is a book about why the Constitution matters to you , and us all.
