Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same..."

 - Ronald Reagan

Danny’s understanding of the value of freedom comes from his first-hand experience of the dehumanizing effects lurking in a society void of such freedom and seeing what it does to the human spirit. He arrived in Fort Bend County, Texas in 1984 with his father only after escaping as political refugees from the Communist regime in Vietnam. For the first fourteen formative years of his life, Danny witnessed continual warfare, fearing for his life each night, not knowing if he would see the next day.  

Danny and his family risked everything to come to America; paying a tremendous price after escaping in the dark of night on a meager fishing boat holding 71 others who, after being robbed by Thai pirates, were left with nothing but the clothes on their back and their commitment to 'liberty or death’. Upon escaping Communist Vietnam, Danny and his father faced an arduous three year journey in which they were imprisoned and forced into Thailand and Philippine refugee camps; it would be over a decade before he would finally reunite with his family.

Having lived in Texas for close to 35 years, Danny has been blessed to experience what he considers sacred America’s traditions of freedom, liberty, and opportunity - all of which are essential in achieving the American Dream.  

"It was a long and arduous journey with tears and pain but the price of freedom and opportunity was worth it. As I look around at our country today, I see deception, I see divisiveness, I see distractions, and if we do not do something about it, we will soon self-destruct before any external enemy can harm us.

It’s time for us, as Americans, to take full responsibility and work to solve these problems. So, I ask you to join me to make a positive difference, because if we don't then who would?“
