Good article Patrick!!
I am a 49 year old Armed Forces veteran and a 22 year veteran police officer. I have experienced much. Always standing strong in the face of danger, always keeping emotions in check. Last night I was reduced to tears. Never have I felt such a combination of sorrow, pride and patriotism. Ronald Reagan was my hero. He was one I looked up to as the model of what a man is and should be. The outpouring of love from this great nation was tremendous. Ronald Reagan, The Gipper will live on in my heart forever! God bless America. And God bless a woman who will forever in my heart be America's first lady, Nancy Reagan.
You're so right, I cry easily though, so you can imagine how the week was for me! LOL! Patrick is right! The timing can only be described as divine!! THank you for your input...
One last look at the week that was....
"I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim and declare the unalienable personhood of every American, from the moment of conception until natural death, and I do proclaim, ordain, and declare that I will take care that the Constitution and laws of the United States are faithfully executed for the protection of America's unborn children." - Presidential Proclamation, Jan. 14, 1988
Sadly, America has moved away from President Reagan's principled, moral, Constitutional position. In our wanderings, is it possible to return to his vision when the media whores are pushing a deathcult mentality incessantly? Eisenhower warned of the military-industrial complex. Our greatest enemy today--after the seditious democrat party--is the leftist lying liberal democrat agenda promoting media cabal. The People have lost their discernment and follow the media lies like sheep passing for review before the hungry wolves.
I've cried all week and Friday night, I just lost it in front of the TV at the sunset service for President Reagan and just when I didn't think I could cry one more tear - I'm sitting here once again crying. Thank you for this article and here's hoping that the American public - all of us - will see the lesson of President Reagan's life and seek to be as good, gentle and kind hearted and strong in the face of the enemy as he was.
No more "religion of peace"???
We learn now that his indecision and dithering about his V.P. is because, even until last week, he's been hoping for the P.R. coup of getting McCain to join his ticket. Not that this would save either of them, but Kerry is so desperate that he's grasping at straws. Now he'll have to look upon the slim choices he's got within his own party and finally make a decision. Since he's only got a couple of bounces left, he's delaying the V.P. announcement until early July (and maybe later). This is foolishness. He would greatly benefit with another voice to counter-attack with--but Kerry just can't make up his mind.
Don't despair...Reagan wouldn't.
Nancy s great challenge will be to expand her world. And so it is our challenge too. Ronald Reagan was indeed a great man, particularly because of his great love. He was not an idol for us to worship, but an example for us to follow.
Yesterday here in Bangor, the heart of enemy territory, they had a nice little Flag Day ceremony and even the socialists that run this place felt obligated to include a tribute to RR.
He'll be remembered and written of long after punks like Clinton are gone for good.
OH! I love that picture!!! Thank you...
I believe the past week of events (planned out long ago) was Ronald Reagan's parting gift to our nation. The overwhelming response of love and gratitude shown can only inspire the young for the future.
They are great...thanks.
