There was once a small, sad, Article. He would never be as big and strong as his younger brother Constitution. Articles would try as hard as he could to be as good as him. He couldn't protect his peoples rights, or make an army to keep the thirteen states safe. He was just a small Article that would just be tossed away. Not Constitution he would stay with the people for a long time.

Constitution wanted to give the people a place to live that was safe to feel and believe whatever they wanted. A leader that would take the opinions of the people and help make the States better. While the States could still make their own laws, and ways to protect them. Instead of a partnership it became a nation, something that Articles could never do.

And so Articles was no longer used, but that is okay because he retired till he is needed again.
