The United States is the leader of the free world.
The very idea of freedom incites fear in the hearts of terrorists across the world.
In liberating Iraq, we have rid the nation and the rest of the world from the danger of Saddam Hussein.
We believe in the dignity of every life, the possibility of every mind, the divinity of every soul. This is our true North.
My commitment is to strive to lean on the Lord with my whole heart, reading His word daily and earnestly seeking His will in my life.
