Because to amend the Constitution you have to propose an amendment in Congress, then it has to be formally passed by Congress. After being passed by Congress, the amendment is sent to the states to be ratified, but it has to be ratified by 3/4 of the states within a 10 year limit, otherwise the amendment is not added to the list of amendments

Why do you think the flexibility of the constitution has been important to American society?

Although the founding fathers were brilliant in creating a foundation for government in America, they knew that the Constitution was far from perfect. That is why the constitution is known as a living document because as society changes (ex. abolishing of slavery) the constitution changes as well. The constitution can be amended and new clauses can be added.
