Is this Show & Tell Day or Career Day? No matter.
Fellow classmates, I bring to you My Dad, the Superhero. No, he’s not a fireman, an astronaut, or a rodeo clown.
He’s even more exciting.
He’s an economist. Da-da-da-daaaaaaa!
Earlier this month, my dad was honored by a Colorado-based think tank for his legacy of community activism and political mentorship.
The Independence Institute awarded the Vern Bickel Award for Grassroots Leadership to Dad during their annual Founders Night.
Because of his VIP status, my mom, my sister, and our husbands were able to crash drink at this hoity-toity party and even dine at Table #1 with President Jon Caldara (even if you disagree with him, you’re sure to find him entertaining) and keynote speaker Michelle Malkin.
After Dad received his award, he gave an incredible speech about responsibility and sacrifice, freedom and liberty, the lengths people will go to gain it, and how easily it can be lost.
