Remembering Ronald Reagan 11 years after his passing

By Lynn R. Mitchell

Ronald Reagan, Feb. 6, 1911- June 5, 2004

“Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time,
that in our time we did everything that could be done.
We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.”
— President Ronald Reagan

When Germany invaded Europe, it was America that brought the people freedom. When Communists built a wall, it was America that brought the people freedom. When Slobodan Milosevic and Saddam Hussein tortured and butchered thousands of their own people, it was America that brought the people freedom.

Ronald Reagan clearly understood freedom and the role America plays in preserving it throughout the world.

When America preserves the freedom of others, it preserves its own freedom.

Freedom is the spirit of America, and it is this spirit that Ronald Reagan communicated so well.

Thank you, President Reagan, for keeping the torch burning. You will be remembered as one of the greatest leaders of all time.

One thought on “Remembering Ronald Reagan 11 years after his passing

  1. Recently, George W. Bush assured college graduates that even “C” students can become president of the United States. What Ronald Reagan did was assure Americans that even “B” actors could do the same, — magnificently !!
