Regarding the passing of Ronald Reagan...

Saturday, June 05, 2004

The sad news today regarding the death of former President Ronald Reagan gives us the chance to pause and reflect on a truly extraordinary life. For many of us that came of age during the Presidency of Ronald Reagan, he began a revolution that continues to this very day. A revolution of individualism, self-reliance and the constant hope that America's best days are yet to come.

We can carry on the Reagan legacy by seeing the best in our fellow Americans and holding onto the optimism that Reagan instilled in all of us. Reagan filled us with hope as Americans. He made us believe again in the greatness of America, and the untapped greatness of ourselves.

Reagan spoke of America as a shining city on a hill. Now he stands ready to enter another shining city, into the loving arms of the Heavenly Father he always spoke of with love and adoration. May God bless Ronald Reagan and the family he has left behind. May we all remember his family in our thoughts and prayers as we too mourn the passing of one of our greatest Americans.

God bless you,
