Peter Sagal, host of NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me hit the road to find out if the Constitution has what it takes to keep up with modern America. Sagal traveled across the country by motorcycle in search of where the U.S. Constitution lives, how it works and how it doesn't... how it unites us as a nation and how it has nearly torn us apart. The four-part series, CONSTITUTION USA, premieres May 7 at 9 p.m. on witf.

In conjunction with the series, we asked you "What does the U.S. Constitution mean to you in 6 words?" Below are your responses:
