Thomas Cahill wrote a series of books collectively called The Hinges of History. He explains why he chose that title. “We normally think of history as one catastrophe after another, war followed by war, outrage by outrage – almost as if history were nothing more than all the narratives of human pain, assembled in sequence. And surely this is, often enough, an adequate description. But history is  also the narratives of grace, the recountings of those blessed and  inexplicable moments when someone did something for someone else, saved a  life, bestowed a gift, gave something beyond what was required by  circumstance.” The U.S. Constitution is undoubtedly one of those narratives of  grace, a Hinge of History, a work of genius bestowed upon us during a  unique time in human history. The Preamble, which is only one sentence,  sums up the Constitution’s goals.
