O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

P.S. A big XXOOXX to my wife. She's just started a ministry of compassionate visiting at the VA Hospital here in Sioux Falls.
