America was blessed to have Ronald Reagan, and especially blessed to have his leadership during the 1980s.  After 9-11, when I created a memorial page in September 2001, I chose to feature words from President Reagan's Farewell address to explain the essence of America, the Shining City on the Hill. I still get choked up when I think of his reading this aloud to the American people.  Please see http://www.billslater.com/wfs_2001_0911.htm  Click this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c32G868tor0  , or the picture below to see it.

As we reflect on the man and his life, we should let his examples of optimism, hope and positive leadership serve to inspire and light the way back to making it a better America than the one we have become. Godspeed, President Reagan!  And God bless and keep the Reagan Family. 

With great love, admiration and respect,
