Hello God. Not being as young as I used to be, I appreciate more and more every year the liberties that I cherish such as having the freedom to enjoy the faith of my choice and voting. Thank you so much that this is possible due to the patriotism and heroism of the military servicemen and women of our United States of America. Please reward and protect them and their loved ones for all the sacrifices they make to defend our country and to enable our nation to assist other countries. Thank you also that because of them, the USA could celebrate another birthday. Amen.
