"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

The Preamble is an introduction to the Constitution. The main purpose is to illustrate how it represents the common good, indicated by its opening word, "we". The Preamble shows the United States is meant to be unified through its goals. It also explains the purpose of the Constitution, defining the powers of the new government.

This child reciting the Preamble shows that the words America lives by can be learned at any age.
