What is sacrifice?
Sacrifice is defined in the Webster's dictionary as something given up or lost. This is important because we all know veterans and military personnel, who have given up body parts, suffer night terror and panic attacks, and suffer mental illness. We also honor families that who lost sons and daughters and go the visit the graves of fathers and mothers who protected this country, its ideals, and its future. For those who join the military, they all take a risk for this country and understand they could be at risk in service to this country. Mr. Trump was asked in a televised interview about sacrifice in comparison to an officer killed saving his squad. Mr. Trump said he felt he made significant sacrifices comparable to the officer and other veterans by building beautiful buildings and employing people. What was left out was that buildings were for his profit. He never served. By definition, he never sacrificed.
As a veteran, Mr. Trump has shown in the claim of sacrificing for country an absolute disregard, and callous ignorance for disabled veterans and all veterans we are about to honor. I do not understand how a veteran or military member can vote for Mr. Trump. In contrast, Mrs. Clinton has expand veterans benefits, been my grieving families, and does not claim to have sacrificed the way our veterans and military have. Who is being honest?
A Ninth Letter to America
Hillary, the president, and many others, very often say "our American values."
The fact is that our original American values are not what these folks represent. The original American values, were based on a Judeo-Christian foundation. That foundation recognized God as the ruler of the universe and His Laws Supreme.
Our founding fathers deeply believed in God and wanted to practice their Christian beliefs freely without interference from the newly formed federal government. The "Freedom of Religion" clause did not mean religions who worshipped idols were allowed in their respective states. They knew God called those man-made things "devils", and that God, except for remnants, had almost destroyed Israel several times because they abandoned him and worshipped idols.
So what are now these things they call "our American values"? They are against God and His Laws.
By many reports, their cohorts are apparently trying to cleanse our military of Christians.
During the eight days that the party conventions took place approximately 24,000 small unborn human beings were deprived of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Those, and limited government, were precious American values.
Now the Democratic Party wants to ban the execution of murderers, but supports the murder of innocent unborn babies. And you vote for them!! May God have mercy on your soul and America.
This is what happens when the Legislative Branch fails to do their job. When one branch goes against God's laws you are to hold them accountable just like you are to hold your own members accountable. When justices go against God's Laws they are not "holding their offices in good behavior." Impeach those judges who vote against God's Law.
Immediately, because of God's Law (Thou shall not kill), pass a bill banning the killing of unborn babies. If the President vetoes the bill, impeach him. Show the guts to stand on God's Word. Sorry, but it is not enough to say I am Pro-Life. Act and God will be with you!

Without the support of team sponsors, sign programs, local businesses and individuals this program would not be what it is today for the youth of our community.
