Why I’m Sending a Donation to FFF


I did it. I called Jacob Hornberger at The Future of Freedom Foundation (703 934-6101) and gave a donation. The key here for me is the “future” — future of freedom. At the rate America is going, I am wondering freedom for my children and grandchildren will exist.

I always tell this story about going to Chicago from St. Paul to see my girlfriend after coming home from the Vietnam War. Well, like every young man, the thoughts of a woman scattered my brain, and on the way to the airport, I realized that I had forgotten my wallet at home. The plane was leaving in another fifteen minutes.

Panic set in, until I realized that I had $400 in my pocket. I parked the car in the airport lot, went into the terminal, bought my ticket with cash, got on the plane, and everything worked out well.

Because I had the freedom to travel, the excitement of that weekend turned to love of that girlfriend, and today I have three fine children and three grandchildren.

Today, I would never have made it on to that plane, and who knows, my whole world might have changed because I would have had to miss that flight. I’ll never know, but I do know that I have already lost the freedom I had in this country just 30 some years ago.

Can the freedom we have lost be regained? I believe it can.

So, this Christmas I am giving my children and grandchildren the gift of my donation to The Future of Freedom Foundation. It is their future I am worried about, and the educational columns the FFF publishes daily and the conferences on freedom they organize, I believe, will help insure that my children and grandchildren will get to live in a free country.

Think about giving a gift to your loved ones by supporting The Future of Freedom Foundation. They might not understand your gift today, but they will appreciate it in the future.
