1. The last line of the Declaration of Independence asserts: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

a. What does it mean to pledge your "lives, fortunes, and honor"? * It means to hold up your life, any property that you own, and your status as an individual in the U.S for the United States of America.

b. For what causes would you be willing to make a significant sacrifice? * My family, my religion, close friends, rights, and respect are things that I’m willing to make significant sacrifices for.

2. Look at the Amendments to the Constitution with a family member. How does one or more of the Amendments protect and limit an individual’s rights? Identify at least one instance of protection and one of limitation. Be sure to name the Amendment(s) and explain your thoughts. * We have a right to own property, but not if you’re local government have other ideas or a better use for your property. It is called eminent domain and they can take your property. So, your right to own property is also limited
