Let's hear it for the Gipper!

It was delightful to see a statue unveiled in London of my political hero, Ronald Reagan. Not only was he a gentleman but he set about righting the wrong of communism and, after 30 years of political activism succeeded in that task. As the great man said:

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.

More than anything, Ronald Reagan spoke of freedom - of freedom's importance and freedom's price. He was a great man and a brilliant president.
