This Is Our Constitution by Khan, Khizr
This Is Our Constitution
by Khan, Khizr
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
This is a book about why the Constitution matters to you, and us all.
