Dr. Dianna Fraley, BRTC history instructor states, “The Constitution was created 233 years ago. It is a simple but elegant document that has endured for over two centuries because of its ability to adapt and change with the needs of the people. It is the archetype for fledgling democracies all over the world and the standard bearer of liberty and equality.”
