Happy birthday Bill of Rights

Today is the anniversary of the adoption of the Bill of Rights -- the first 10 Constitutional amendments guaranteeing citizens' rights such as freedoms of speech, religion, and the press. It's an inspiring text to read, particularly for young people and particularly for today, as winds of change are blowing.

The original text of the bill is quite high-level text, measuring 1540L. This page gives a concise rundown of the Bill of Rights at 1100L.
