I write this letter to remind you of a conversation
we had yesterday.
As you were but 14 hours old, I do not expect
you to remember it, but putting my thoughts on paper
will give you something to reflect upon in later
First off, thanks and praise be to God for blessing
me and your Nana with your birth.
You are our fifteenth grandchild and along
with your two brothers and 12 cousins, you and your
descendants will fill the Kerns house with many
years of holiday joy.
I wish I was welcoming you into a world filled with
peace and prosperity, but such is not the case.
Since the beginning of time, the forces of
light and darkness have battled.
Sadly, the evil one is on the move as
evidenced by the ISIS terrorist attack in Paris the
day before you were born.

Christmas Day victory at Trenton.
Your maternal grandfather just retired from a
career in the Air Force, while your two uncles

I do fear our nation has crossed the threshold and
all we have done in the defense of freedom, could be
Now is the time for every American patriot to
use their unique God-given talent to defend liberty.
I pray you and others will never give up the
