His story includes hardship, perseverance, family unity, work, and then the prosperity achieved in a free country that allows each of us to decide our destiny.
Daniel's wise father, who now lives in the comfort and abundance created by his patient labor and sacrifice, assures us that we can make it with just three things: God, good credit, and freedom -- the liberty to work.
Daniel warns us that the path to freedom his family took is disappearing. The growth in the scope and size of government in the United States is starting to make it like the governments many immigrants were trying to leave behind. He warns us not to get caught in the dependency that government offers. It will condemn our children to a life that falls far short of the American Dream.
