July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence. This independence remains 241 years, despite being constantly under attack by internal and external forces. What sustains motivation for the military men and women that server our country? These men and women made a *premeditated sacrifice* of their lives to preserve and protect the freedom and the people. There is clearly an absolute supreme guiding force for them. Today I pray for continued strength and guidance for our leaders and for those that are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you and God bless!
