On Constitution Day, Lea Carawan, Executive Director of the CPCF, joined former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese III, Dr. Ben Carson, Mark Levin, Dr. Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College and many other key leaders who contributed to The Washington Times Special Section.

Lets rise up together again in prayer just as these godly patriots rose up together at the birth of America.
