Americans have always shared a commitment to the rights proclaimed by the Declaration of Independence, from generation to generation, lighting up the night sky each Fourth of July in celebration with their families and sacrificing their lives in defense of these rights on the battlefields of the world.

Will Americans continue to see the truth and sacredness of these rights and of their source? Or will they choose now to change course onto a tyrannical path? At this time in our history, let us Americans get down on our knees, loving the Lord with all our being, heart, mind, and soul, in adoration, worship and prayer to him that our nation, under God, established with a sacred devotion to certain inalienable rights endowed by our Creator, shall not perish but build a new day of freedom and spread these blessings of our Creator throughout this whole land.
