Are our founding documents still relevant?

Maybe you are like me and are tired of hearing all the rhetoric of why this country is so messed up. Maybe you are young and not so sure what makes it all that great? As Andrew McIndoe in his email to me explained, the best place to start is with the truth about our founding documents:

One of the things I also keep nearby is a copy of our founding documents like the Declaration of Independence. Every time I catch a glance of it or take time to open it up, it leads to good reflection on the timeless ideals we’re fighting to preserve.

If you’re looking for something to listen to while you relax or run some errands this weekend, I’d recommend this great Heritage Explains podcast with one of our visiting fellows, Dr. Allen Guelzo. In this episode, he explains why the Declaration is such a beautiful document that’s still relevant in today’s culture.

Let me know what you think of Dr. Guelzo’s message. What’s your favorite part of our founding documents? What do you think people can stand to learn from them today?
