Congressman Robert Latta (R-OH) On Constitution Day

I have always been thankful that so many of our country’s greatest leaders and statesmen were able to be on this earth at the same time and place to draft the Constitution. As a lifelong student of history and government, we were blessed as a nation to have individuals that put self-interest and sectionalism aside to debate, argue, draft and sign the Constitution. Our Constitution has been that beacon upon the hill, that guiding star at night, and that shining city that millions of persons around the word have longed to be guided by within their own countries.

It is my privilege to have introduced H. Res. 734 honoring the Constitution of the United States and the freedoms and rights it has given to every American. Today, the Constitution is not read or studied by enough Americans.

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.
