RONALD REAGAN DAY AND 102 BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
Ronald Wilson Reagan was born 102 years ago and during his lifetime he became one of the greatest individuals this country has known. He served as President from 1981 - 1989 and during ,"The Reagan Years," our Nation knew prosperity, strength, world prestige and most importantly a patriotism and love of country that was spearheaded by a truly great and gifted leader. A leader who understood freedom and that true freedom comes when government is limited and the people are allowed to use the God given freedoms protected by our Constitution to prosper and live as each sees fit.
Reagan's greatest gift was in expressing his eternal optimism and exceptionalism of and for our Nation. He called us, "the shining city on a hill," and ,"the last best hope," for all mankind. His strength as a leader ended the threat of Soviet aggression that had plagued the world since the end of WWII. His trust in the American people saw the greatest peacetime economic growth in our history. His leadership gave America a prestige and respect throughout the world.
We will never forget this man who though humble, achieved greatness. Our Nation and history was better because of him and honored to have him lead us through some of the most difficult moments in American and world history. God bless the memory of President Reagan and happy birthday Mr. President.
