Happy Birthday, President Reagan

Today marks what would have been the 94th birthday of President Reagan. In glad and grateful rememberance, here is my piece paying tribute to him, written upon his death last June.

And below is one of his most memorable quotes -- it's also on my web site:

America has already succeeded where so many historic attempts at freedom have failed. Already, we've made this cherished land the last best hope of mankind. It's up to us, in our generation, to carry on the hallowed task. It is up to us, however we may disagree on policies, to work together for progress and humanity so that our grandchildren, when they look back on us, can truly say that we not only preserved the flame of freedom, but cast its warmth and light further than those who came before us.

How blessed America was to have a leader of such vision.
