Our Day

I, like you I’m sure, have spent the day happy and sad, with tears and laughs.

I have cried this morning and was fine until Mrs. Reagan embraced the flagless casket. Now my tears burn my eyes.

God bless Ronald Reagan and his wife.

There were three in the providential triumverate our Lord placed here for freedom. The voice has now gone silent. Still we have our British strength and our Polish spirit. That strength and that spirit now grow weary. Soon our Lord will call them back home.

All we will have is the memory of the three who spoke for freedom when others would not. Thatcher the strength, Pope John Paul II the spirit, and Ronald Reagan the voice and the flame.

Let’s live by their example and by Reagan’s words. If we do we must commit ourselves to conquering the newest evil. But, we can. We must. For his legacy and our future, we must.

God bless you all this night.

  • May President Reagan lay in peaceful rest.

    I must say though, I find your comments about Democrats DISGUSTING. Our unit is well aware of what is occuring during this election year despite the attempts of the rightwing media to block off any news (aside from Limbaugh and Fox) which are so lame it’s incredible.

    I find my Democratic comrades the most patriotic, caring, loyal and NON-RACIST human beings in the world.

    This is YOUR blog, but please remember this. Those are YOUR thoughts only. They do not reflect anyone other than yourself.

    Perhaps you’re being spoon fed news from the Fox Network? If this is the case, I should inform you – but we are delighted that a war hero, and a fellow Veteran will likely be our next Commander in Chief.

    I find your comments extremely one-sided and I will ask my brothers to pray for you.
