A Very Special Fourth of July Message

July 5, 2007

The Evergreen Freedom Foundation in Washington State, headed by former gubernatorial candidate Bob Williams, is a non-profit dedicated to preserving freedoms in our state and nation. To celebrate this Fourth of July as a day dedicated not just to celebrate our independence but our founding on the firm principles and ideas of personal freedom, EFF created a video of a 77 year old gentleman who grew up in the Netherlands during World War II, struggled under Nazi occupation with his family involved in the Underground including the risky job of hiding people being hunted down by the Nazis. He came to the US when he was 18 and lived the American entrepreneurial dream, building numerous businesses, creating considerable personal wealth, and raising a family of four boys and two girls.

I’m very proud to be one of those boys he raised.

Here is a tribute to freedom courtesy of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation and my dad, Sid Baron.
