Conroe, May 1 – Happy Law Day! The basic idea of Law Day is that we are a Nation that lives under the law, not under the whims of man.
The federal government tried to get into the act and enacted 36 U.S.C., § 113, which states, in part:
- “Law Day, U.S.A., is a special day of celebration by the people of the United States—
- (1) in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States and of their rededication to the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other and with other countries; and
- (2) for the cultivation of the respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.”
This stuff is serious, friends.
Let’s be thankful that we live in a nation under the rule of law. Let’s also be thankful towards our law enforcement officers who keep the peace in our communities and protect us from the bad guys who try to force us to live by their whim.
