|(The United States of America)|
Here in America, we celebrate our heroes, those who served, and/or gave their lives for the freedoms that we so dearly cherish, as we should. Unfortunately, just as we celebrate those who have fought, sacrificed, and died for us, we must also realize that there are many who continue to wish us harm; therefore, it is of the utmost importance that we continue to pray, seek God, and declare that the evils that have caused the deaths of many, cannot, and will not be repeated today, in our own time.
Recently, I met a WWII veteran who survived the beaches of
Normandy, fought all throughout France and the occupied territories, and finally met up with the forces of the other Allied nations as they crossed the Rhein river, headed into the heart of Germany and Hitler's Nazi fatherland. As we talked for those few minutes, I began to realize one thing, just as I am able to talk with this gentleman today, 75 years after the conclusion WWII, somewhere, out in this beautiful God-given world of ours, there remains many of the perpetrators of perniciousness that had stained Europe, Asia, and the entire world at that time.

The world that we live in today is not much different than the world of twenty, forty, 75, or even 2000 years ago, evil abides everywhere; however, there is a God who will hear the cries and prayers of His people, and He will hear us from heaven, and He will come in like a flood to aid and protect His people.
