There is a very symbolic and treasured story that goes along with the deaths of these two men. They each waited until the 4th of July, made sure the other made it as well even though they were not speaking to one another, and it was on the 50th anniversary of our young constitution. If only we had such gents as these today to protect our beautiful America and our Liberties.

O Lord, where hast thou hidden Thy face? From whence shall come one so brave in these times of such import and strife? 'Tis You, O Lord Jesus. The only One I know who is able and willing to help guide us now. Please help us through this storm, dear Father. In Jesus' precious name, Amen.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can.
