Why are the amendments to the US Constitution important?

The amendments are important to the US Constitution because it explain our rights and duties as citizens. They are also important because you can defend using the first 10 amendment court for as an example. They are helpful also to strengthen the government and help people not to be control by other people like a queen or king. It gives people the independence also it was important to our ancestors because it ends the slaves and the differences between woman and man. The second amendment was so important to the founding fathers of this nation because they knew the importance of a well-armed populous in defending themselves from their new government but it also affect us today because it prevents the federal government from banning private ownership of firearms by legal, law-abiding citizens.
In so doing, it provides a balance against the power of the central government to seize absolute control by force of arms. It also provides for the citizens to act in self defense of person and home against criminal actions by outlaws. It also provides a pool of armed citizens to act in defense of the nation and state (not so much in this day, but when there was little or no standing army, this was important.)
Next the fourth amendment’s also affect us today because It prevents unlawful search and seizure of private homes and property by government as a whole, without probable cause. It also ensures that there will be judicial oversight in issuing arrest warrants-to be issued only with a preponderance of evidence.
Also the thirteen amendment affect us today too because it outlawed slavery in the United States.
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro’ the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that Star – Spangled Banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen thro’ the mists of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
‘Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov’d homes and the war’s desolation;
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Pow’r that hath made and preserv’d us as a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
