We the People (Part 2)

What did We the people mean in 1787, when the constitution was written?

What do you want We the people to mean in the next 100 years?
Write an informative essay telling how the responses were similar and how they were
different. Be sure to include at least one response from each person, with their name in the
detail paragraphs. In the conclusion, compare what you think We the people means
compared to the responses from your interviews.
