About Peter Vodenka - In America Quote

A Fear and A Dream

Peter had a fear and a dream. At just 18, he was trapped. Tired of looking over his shoulder and longing for freedom, Peter decided to break free.

For 10 years, he didn’t rest, doggedly plotting his escape from communist Czechoslovakia. He risked everything to set his plan in motion.

He could not fail. Death or imprisonment awaited those who were caught.

And he wasn’t alone.

The lives of his wife and children depended on his every move. And so it began—his journey for freedom.

A New Fear and A New Dream

Today, Peter has a new fear and a new dream. Now an American citizen, he cannot sit idly by watching American freedoms slip away. When each of us pursues our American dreams, America shines as the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”

The same determination that delivered him from the iron fist encourages us to break free of our limitations.

And we are not alone.

The lives of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren depend on our every move.
