PRESIDENT REAGAN AT THE BRANDENBURG GATE 25 YEARS AGO
It has been twenty five years since President Reagan visited the Brandenburg Gate at The Berlin Wall standing tall and proud declaring to Soviet Secretary Gorbachev, "tear down this wall!"
It was a time when Soviet Communism had been experiencing an expansion, that is until President Reagan took office in 1981 and declared the Soviet Union to be the," evil empire," that it was and Soviet Communism would one day end up on the," ash heap of history."
With steadfast leadership and vision with absolute resolve and purpose President Reagan stood strong despite criticism both at home and abroad and soon after he retired from the Presidency, The Berlin Wall did fall and Soviet Communism collapsed and is now resigned to the ash heap of history. President Reagan was a true leader whose vision of America and freedom throughout the world was an inspiration to everyone.
He understood that all men long for the God given right of freedom and nothing can stop freedom when the individual seeks our God given right to have it. He changed the world and reminded us as Americans that we are an exceptional country and people whose greatness lies in the liberty of all who call America our home. God bless the memory of this great man and true American hero and patriot!
