"WE THE PEOPLE ..."

Three people standing in front of the American flag
9/1/2009 —
Calling all Penn State students, faculty, staff, and alumni!

You will recognize this phrase from the beginning of the preamble to the Constitution of the United States:

"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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."

Everyone is asked to take a photo that reflects what the theme We The People means to them. Who are "the people"? Are "the people" the same as the people from the time the Constitution was written? Who are the people of America?

Submit your photo in flickr for a cross-campus collaborative project for CONSTITUTION DAY.

Photos may be taken anytime between January 1 and September 17, 2009.
