Comparing the U.S. Constitution

The U.S. Constitution has 4,400 words.  It is the oldest and the shortest written constitution of any government in the world.  For more information click here.

Pages one and four of the constitution is displayed in a bullet-proof case in the National Archives Building in Washington, D.C.  I saw it once, and it was awe inspiring to see something so profound that was written so long ago.  If you have been there to see it, what did you think about it?  If you haven't seen it, do you plan to go?  (You may leave comments below.)
