  • Meet GRW Guest Speaker Don Jans

    "My Grandchildren's America"

    WILL IT STILL BE

    THE HOME OF THE FREE AND THE LAND OF THE BRAVE?

    Don Jans, the author of "My Grandchildren's America", believes that

    America is great because of its promises of individual freedom and

    opportunity. Like most grandparents, he believes his grandchildren

    will have the ability and desire to excel, if that opportunity is still

    available. Will the changes promised and happening now, limit these

    freedoms and opportunities?

    Don has been a student of history for over 40 years. He has

    concentrated in the study of European history with an emphasis on

    Russian history. This led him to his study of Karl Marx and Marxism.

    In addition to being a popular speaker on Marxism, Don has also had

    articles published on the topic. He also has been a guest on regional

    and national media broadcasts.
