Some of you may know that last Wednesday evening (March 1st) my father passed peacefully away. I never expected the overwhelming amount of press, and the outpouring of remembrances posted on blogs nationwide.
The first time I heard him speak publicly, I prayed that great oratory skills would be an inherited trait. What a gifted speaker! My father was a powerful debater and shone brilliantly when on television. He was a professional on the radio, and a complete loon in the living room. He was handsome, classy, and very presidential, even when talking about his favorite food! He would get teary when listening to music, and dissolve into laughter trying to get through a joke. In my eyes he had it all: a great job, an immense enjoyment of life, and a beautiful wife.
I became a member of the Libertarian Party in 1995. It was wonderful to discover a political party that reflected my beliefs for the direction of this great country. After working on my father's presidential campaign in 1996, I was inspired to run for office myself—if only to provide a choice for others who were dissatisfied with the existing “single-party system”. One of my favorite memories is being in the voting booth, November 2000, and seeing both our names on the ballot. How many kids can say that?!
His radio and TV shows spread a great message. I was so proud of him, and of what he was accomplishing. I am grateful for the lessons of personal responsibility that I learned.
Pamela and I have become close friends, and are able to laugh along with the tears. We are relieved that this awful disease did not drag on. And wherever Harry Browne is today, he is enjoying a glass of wine along with steak and french fries, listening to opera, surrounded by the animals he loved throughout his life.
I will miss him dearly, and so will the cause of liberty.
