He always seemed to understand that he was only a temporary custodian of the highest office in the land, and his own reverence and respect for that office guided his every action. It was the reason he never took his jacket off in the Oval Office.
The world will remember President Reagan for having helped defeat communism and for restoring America's faith in itself and its leaders. But I will remember him as the kind and generous soul who never forgot the little people, even when he was the most powerful man in the world.
...and that sets the man apart from all of his liberal/leftist/socialist adversaries. They want power and to rule...he knew he served those who had shared power with him...and he loved and respected them for it.
Not to mention that his principles were firmly set on American foundational values and heritage.
What a GREAT, GRAND man!
