Happy Birthday Mr. Reagan
And for that, I thank him. For all the problems, short comings, bad decisions, and failures that are common to all who take up the mantle of worldly leadership, he brought an optimism and a hope to our country that was not there in the late 70s, as I began to move into the world of young adulthood. There would be problems, worries, and concerns as there are in any era. But at that crucial time in my life during the mid-80s, we believed there was hope. Something five years earlier so few believed could ever happen again. And so for the good memories, the happier times, the bountiful prosperity that even the critics were happy to enjoy, thanks for the good times. Happy Birthday Mr. Reagan, may you rest in the peace of our Lord.
