Preamble to the Constitution and Bill of Rights 1. Write a summary of the Preamble to the Constitution and a summary of the Bill of Rights.This should be a good paragraph. - The preamble is a paragraph that states that we should form a more perfect union in our country, establish justice, and secure our blessings of liberty. The Bill of Rights is the first ten amendments of the constitution and they state specific things that the government can’t take away from us as citizens of America. 2. What does the phrase “to ourselves and our posterity” (paragraph 1) refer to? (Hint- research the definition for posterity) How can you tell from the Preamble that the Constitution is meant to do more than merely resolve the country’s issues at that time? - Prosperity means new generation. It is stating that it will help us now and the new generation. 3. What does the preamble to the Bill of Rights tell readers about the reasons the document was created?

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
