This past Sunday, September 17th, 2023 we celebrated the signing of the United States Constitution! On this day, September 17th, 1787, 39 members of the Continental Congress signed the Constitution that would establish a set of laws that every American citizen would uphold. In February 1952, Congress designated this day as Citizenship Day and later (in 2004) Constitution Day.

Thinking about this time in our nation’s history: it’s crazy to think none of our students here at NCS Digital have any memories of this event happening. Yes, they may have heard their teachers talk about this tragic day in US History; however, they were not alive when it happened. It’s a memory burned in the minds of many older generations; we can recall exactly where we were when we first learned about the attacks on the United States. For me, I was in 9th grade English class (4th period with Mrs. Stalling) at Utica High School. Where were you when you first learned about it?
In remembrance of September 11th, I encourage each and every one of you to take a moment and reflect on this time in history. Share stories with others; reflect on how life here in the United States has changed because of this event.
