RUSH: Here is Veah. She’s 11 years old, Veah in Sacramento, California, my adopted hometown. So nice to have you with us today. How are you?
CALLER: Good. How are you?
RUSH: I’m great, now that you’ve called. Thanks much.
CALLER: So I read your book, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims, and I loved it, it was one of my favorite books.
RUSH: Thank you. Thank you very much. When did you read it?
CALLER: I just finished it a couple nights ago, and it was like — it was the best.
RUSH: Oh, wow. Do you have the others?
CALLER: No, I don’t, but I want to get them soon.
RUSH: Well, you know, the Brave Pilgrims, I’m so glad you read that, because it’s so important. The Pilgrims and their arrival set the stage for the founding of this country and the values that were part of the founding. You are the exact person that that book was written for, somebody your age, and I can’t tell you how happy you have made me that you like it and that you understand it. You know what, I would like to send you the other four books, Veah.
CALLER: Really? Thank you.
RUSH: I would. In fact, I’m going put together a whole Rush Revere and Liberty gift package for you, and we’ll send that out to you. If you’ll just give Mr. Snerdley here, give him your address. Don’t hang up, give him your address and we’ll FedEx some things out to you pretty soon, hopefully next week, including the books, and even the audio versions so you can listen to them sometime if you want.
RUSH: I really appreciate that you liked the book, I really do, and I hope you like the others. There’s a bunch more. And I hope you like them just as much.
CALLER: I learned so much about US history, and they’re just, really, great books.
RUSH: Well, thank you so much. She is why we do it, folks. She’s exactly why we do it, and makes it all worthwhile, too. Thank you again, Veah.
