On May 7, 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Rheims (rams), France, ending its role in World War II after 6 years of fighting.  Recently I had the opportunity to visit the WW II Museum in New Orleans.  It was probably the most impactful museum I have ever been in as it gave me a glimpse into one of my idols lives my Grandfather. Many things stood out to me on the visit but one of the early images I saw that showed the size of the armies when WW II broke out.  At the start of the war Japan’s army had 850k troops, Germany had 3.2 MM, & the US had 300k.  Germany’s army was 4 times our size.  We honestly had no business winning that war.  I think about the leaders at the time, men like MacArthur & Patton.  Men that could inspire others to accomplish great things. I don’t want to trivialize what they did to what we are doing but concepts apply. We are up against a big fight to defeat Sad Clown Syndrome & we need leaders that have characteristics like those great leaders of the time.  One of Patton’s famous quotes was, “A pint of sweat, will save a gallon of blood.” Which in F3 can be summed up as “preparedness”. It does not matter that there are only 25k F3 men in a world of 4 billion men. If we do the hard things now & are prepared for the moments when we face Sad Clown Syndrome then ultimately we will prevail.  Aye



Dear lord thank you for this opportunity to wake up early in the gloom & experience your greatness.  We are humbled for the opportunity you give us every day to be in your glory & serve you as leaders in our community.  Watch over those that are not as fortunate as us & give them healing & strength in their struggles.  In your name we pray.  Amen!
