Bill of Rights: On the late warm evening of April 2006...

Our portal “American Clubs – Ukraine” commences publishing the essays, submitted to the Second Annual Student Essay Competition in support of Democracy in Ukraine, on the topic “Bill of Rights in the US: Democracy Lessons for Ukraine”.

On the late warm evening of April 2006 a young teenager standing on the steps of the U.S. Capitol addressed his American counselor:
-  So, it’s been some 130 years already. And these principles are still actual.
- Yes, they are. And They, probably, couldn’t have even imagined what a difference for all farther generations to come was made.
