Incredibly brave and incredibly emotional.
President Reagan sensed that the days of Eastern Europe living in prison camp was numbered. Even so, the State Department had fits, and the media (and maybe even me, back then) considered his words to be highly provocative.
But he knew EXACTLY what he was saying...and Eastern Europe (and basically Russia) are FREE!!!!!!
For us people that grew up during the Cold War, we NEVER thought that the Soviets could be defeated without huge amounts of bloodshed...how wrong we were.
Indeed. Great words from a great man and a great leader. Too bad religious liberty is now disappearing quickly from the nation he loved and served.
Ditto....God Bless Pres. Reagan. What a great man!
A man who enhanced the world with his existence.
Not detract from it with the vacuum of his being.
Dang!!! I do miss that President. The last president I was proud to claim as “my President”
I tear up every time I see an old Reagan movie or hear that great mans voice. What an honor to have voted for such a great man, great leader, and a wonderful speaker.
I wonder how Mrs. Reagan is....does anyone know how she is doing? I often think of Reagan’s funeral and the crowds there to honor him and her. When the gentleman in the crowd yelled “God bless you Mrs. Reagan”...wow. What a moment in time that was.
Your source name is “Daily Caller,” but the link goes to Breitbart. ???
My wife was in the audience when President Reagan made that speech. Even today, whenever she sees a clip of his speech, it gives her goosebumps.
How fortunate are we who experienced one of the greatest American presidents and a collaborative pope who is on his way to sainthood.
Thanks for the post and ping, Starwise!
