As a kid, I remember watching cartoons on Saturday morning and waiting for the next edition of "Schoolhouse Rock" in between shows. Covering topics in grammar, math, science, and history, these have become a real gem over the years. I now own the DVD collection of them and enjoy passing them on to my children.
One of the most important ones is simply called "The Preamble." To this day, I'm unable to recite the Preamble of the Constitution, but I can sing it!
For all those kids out there: This is what this great country is about. May the ideals in it continue to live on with you when we adults are long gone. Pass them on to your children and be proud to say, "I'm an American!"
