From JFK’s Inaugural Address in 1961: “We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty”.
Purpose Statement: The reason Liberty Lives Forever exists is to supply pocket Constitution books containing the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution to ‘We the People’ with a focus on students. Students are expected to study and learn the 24 flash cards contained in the books that are all facts taken directly out of the text of the US Constitution.
Mission Statement: To fulfill its purpose Liberty Lives Forever works with veterans organizations, service organizations, fraternal organizations, school districts, colleges and universities and other interested parties to obtain the pocket Constitution books from the Liberty Lives Forever headquarters and to distribute them, free of charge, to people in their local communities and to students. Many elected officials have videotaped messages for students, and constituents, to view and then to share their comments with the elected official through their websites.
The United States Constitution was signed by our Founding Fathers in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787 at the end of the Constitutional Convention. This marked a great time in history, because it was the birth of our Constitution.
When: Tuesday, April 13th, 2021
What: Ask everyone to read, study, learn, and discuss the contents of the Declaration of Independence with their family, friends, co-workers, classmates, teachers, and anyone else in their network
Then What? Have people e-mail their US Representative, US Senators, their Governor, and President Biden sharing what they learned about the Declaration of Independence They can do this by going to their websites and filling out the online comment form.
Why? – Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence. People can read his original draft and the final version endorsed by our Founding Fathers at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. I have attached both documents.
What Else? Have students write a short essay sharing what they liked about the Declaration of Independence and send it into their local newspaper Maybe their local newspaper would print the best essays to share with their readership?
What else did Thomas Jefferson do? Have students research other things that Jefferson did and share this with their fellow students, family, and anyone else in their network.

Donations/Sponsorship: In order to get the pocket Constitution books printed and distributed across American takes funding. Anyone wishing to donate to this cause will be assured that people across America will get free copies of our country’s founding documents. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to distribute millions of these pocket Constitution books to people in our communities and to our students, at all grade levels? The American Legion Department of Colorado has passed a unanimous Resolution for Constitution Day, September 17, 2018 and I have reached out to the United Veterans Committee of Colorado, a coalition of about 50 service organizations, to participate as well. What better way of distributing these Founding Documents but through veterans that have sacrificed to preserve our freedoms and way of life? We are looking for a major National Sponsor to contribute to pay for the printing and distribution of 1 million pocket Constitution books that will be distributed, free of charge, by veterans and others across America. Sponsors names will be printed on the inside front cover of the books to recognize their support. We can also give some of these books to the sponsors to distribute to their employees, customers, and others in their network. We might even be able to hold a media event in Washington, DC, to kick-off this educational program.

George Washington , 1789
And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.
James Madison, 1822
A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy; or, perhaps, both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
