“It is important to remember the wisdom and bravery of the 39 men that signed the Constitution in 1787,” said Kevin Wagner, Ph.D., associate professor of political science and director of the Jack Miller Forum at FAU. “And it is important to reflect on how our lives are affected everyday by the principles enshrined in this document.”
