Flags line the foreground as flowers are pictured atop the sign for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California after the death of former United States president Ronald Reagan June 5, 2004. Jelly beans were one of Reagan's favorites.

This is so poignant, looking at these pictures and remembering when it was morning again in America.

Thanks for this thread.

It's been a great way for me to overcome the deep sadness I feel about the passing of this great man.

Ronald Reagan is who made me realize that optimism is the key to success and happiness. I grew up in the 60's in a Military family and I saw first hand how my closest family members were treated after the Vietnam War, I remember all too well the failure of John F. Kennedy in the Bay of Pigs, and then his assassination. I saw how LBJ manhandled the Vietnam War, the race riots after MLK was assassinated, Robert Kennedy's assassination, the resignation of Richard Nixon, the short and controversial term of Gerald Ford, and then the utterly clueless 4 years of Jimmy Carter.

After all of that, I had little faith in the people who were supposed to leading us. But then along came Ronald Reagan to the rescue, I rescued me from my pessimism, and showed me that what makes a person a happy & successful person, is not how someone deals with the things that goes right in our lives, It's how we deal with the things that go wrong in life.

Reagan's optimism was contagious, and as the advertisement says..... "It was Morning in America again"

God Bless You Ronald Reagan, the Shining City on the Hill that you spoke of often, awaits you in Heaven.

You and I both know they will.

NASCAR, the drivers, the crews, and the fans, are the most patriotic and conservative sports fans in the Country.

Look for an emotional tribute to Ronald Reagan. It was the economic boom of the 80's that catapulted NASCAR to what it is today

Someone tonight, on one of the cable shows, said something that I hadn't really considered before. That RR came to the Presidency after 5 failed presidents -- I never had looked at it quite that clearly, but that's what those were before him.

RR restored our lagging confidence with his faith in this country.

For that, he will always be one of the greatest.

Yes, it does.

Believe me... I grew up during those 5 failed presidents, so I can testify to the mood back then. Myself, I had nothing but love and respect for those who wore our uniform and aswered the call to serve their country, (as I do today), but I had no respect or confidence in our leaders throughout my younger years, that all changed shortly after Ronald Reagan was sworn in.

I have always supported our leaders during the many struggles we have faced since 1960, but I was never really particularly proud of them. Ronald Reagan changed all that. He restored my sense of patriotism, and the belief that the highest office in the land was not just the grand prize for who ever promised the most. Ronald Reagan paid the utmost respect for the office he held and his leadership uplifted this entire nation as we witnessed an economic boom the likes we have never seen before

Yep, you got it right. We were headed down a spiral till he righted us.

And I just heard what the Secret Service's name for him was!

Rawhide!

Perfect.

You might like to read the old Irish prayer I just posted on the long thread.

Someone had said that RR might like an Irish wake.

This prayer seemed fitting for this son of Tipperary that he was.

Irish Blessing -- In honor of Ronald Reagan

Ronald Reagan's favorite inspiring quote was displayed on his desk in the White House Oval Office: "There's no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit."

For some reason, seeing a picture President Reagan usually brings a smile to my face.

Even though his death saddens me greatly, I still found myself grinning when looking at these pictures. I'd quit grinning and then a few minutes later find myself grinning again.

I suspect it has something to do with me remembering what an absolutely wonderful sense of humor he possessed.

I have been around since early Eisenhower years, and today marks the passing of certainly the greatest president in my time, and probably the greatest one I will have the pleasure of knowing.

Evertime I think of Ronald Reagan defending himself from one of the many baseless accusation from the Democrats, I can still hear him saying...... "Wellll....... There they go again"

Thanks for posting this. I was stationed on board the USS Dwight D Eisenhower from 1983 until 1987. In June of 1984 we were asked to be a part of the D-Day Anniversary remembrances. Since I speak French I was part of the shore party from the ship. I was at Pont du Hoc with President Reagan and Margaret Thatcher and was able to meet both of them.

I told President Reagan that my uncle (my father's brother) was killed during the invasion and was buried at the allied cemetary there. I had a picture taken with both President Reagan and Mrs. Thatcher and gave it to my father upon my return. My father passed away in 1991 and I have since been unable to find the picture.

Thanks for sharing that experience with us, what an honor it must have been for you to meet President Reagan and Maggie Thatcher, as well as an honor for your father to get that picture.

Thanks for your service,

God Bless
