QUOTE (Sea Dog @ 08-Jun-2004, 02:14 AM)

We had a Commander-in-Chief that was a realist, he knew who and what the enemy was, who the good guys were and who the bad guys were. And he wasn't afraid to stand up and say it.

He took this country and the world and got them turned around and pointed in the right direction and we are all the better for it. thumbsup.gif

Sea dog, I quote you for reasons which may or may not be obvious immediately. Your sentiments are exactly correct. But what is not necessary to say in memory of the man, I believe, is a relevance of contrast that should be witnessed to, if not exploited. The morale of the military did change. But so did the morale of the civilian. That core group of Americans who did, and still do hang on to the dream of rightness without compromise. That feeling that together, the American people can be the cornerstone of liberty and freedom upon which ALL other nations would like to build. That idealogy has long endured, but under a fatally diminishing percentage of the population. Touchy-feely, tolerant, all-inclusiveness and the outright celebration of all that is vile and immoral have a strangle hold on our society. But there is a man in office right now who would love to change all that. GW Bush, while having little chance of ever achieving the status of a Ronald Reagan, has in his being the same formula for greatness, and the leadership potential to set the nation right with God. How long until we see this and promote it for the good of a God inspired nation? I don't mean to take this thread in the wrong direction, and no reply to my thought here is expected. My intention is to hopefully inspire any here who revered President Reagan, that may not appreciate President Bush, to re-evaluate this current presidency. Look at what he's trying to do. Look at the choices of Supreme Court Justice nominees. Look at his attempts to protect the lives of the unborn, to secure a centuries-old tradition of the sacred union of a man and his wife. On 9/12/2001, we all needed a leader. George W Bush answered that call, and was the pillar of strength and the voice of resolve we all were looking for.

To sum up what I'm saying.......we shouldn't let the spirit of the Reagan years be buried with his body. That spirit could well live on, if we will only support what we already have.

Whether Reagan's decisions were right or wrong (he had both) he always carried them out with style. I had great respect for him.

I believe we have seen one of the very best President's we will ever see in our lifetime pass away.
Ronald Regan was definitely a leader who had compassion, understanding and strength mixed with a great sense of humor to lead this nation.
Yes, I voted for him and I believe he did his very best for this country.

Ronald Reagan will be remembered for what he gave us....a sense that we COULD and SHOULD be proud of what American's had accomplished. He was comfortable with himself, was a patriot and was devoted to his wife and family. Not a bad legacy. While not everyone agreed with all of his policies, most people seemed to respect him for having strong opinions and the hutzpah to face his opponents. My thoughts and prayers are with his family as they go through this very long funeral process. Reagan may be gone but he will not be forgotten.

Sometimes Americans get it right. That is why we have the form of Government we do. There have been great Presidents and not so great Presidents. Mr. Regan was one of those who had a true vision of where we as a nation wanted to go. That is why the majority elected him. He was not afraid to act on his convictions and the mandate the people of American gave him He will always be in our heartss as a true good man who did the best job he knew how to do in the position he was given by the people. President of The United States of America.

A poem that I think applies to R.R.

Not, how did he die? But, how did he live?
Not, what did he gain? But what did he give?
These are the merits to measure the worth
Of a man as man, regardless of birth.

Not, what was his station? But, had he a heart?
And how did he play his God-given part?
Was he ever ready with word or good cheer
To bring a smile, to banish a tear?

Not, what was his church? Nor, what was his creed?
But, had he befriended those really in need?
Not, what did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But, how many were sorry when he passed away?

-Edythe Draper, Draper's Book of Quotations for the Christian World (Wheaton: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 1992). Entry 7423.

The final hymn of the funeral service in the National Cathedral.


The Mansions of the Lord


To fallen soldiers let us sing,
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing,
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord

No more weeping,
No more fight,
No friends bleeding through the night,
Just Devine embrace,
Eternal light,
In the Mansions of the Lord

Where no mothers cry
And no children weep,
We shall stand and guard
Though the angels sleep,
Oh, through the ages let us keep
The Mansions of the Lord

As I sat here watching the funeral of one of our greatest presidents I could not help thinking of how much Nancy Reagan has endurd today with such a along funeral procession and the customary naval 4-f-18 fly over, the singing and the procession of people there to pay their respects to the President.
She looked exhausted and drained.

The man was just that... a man.
Not a god he be... there were greater before him and will be more to follow...
Rest your soul Mr. Regan, your efforts were noticed and well recieved...
... but all did not feel as you believed.

I agree, Annabelle, Nancy Reagan did look exhausted. Nancy and Ronald Reagan truly shared a loving and committed marriage. It must have been heartbreaking to watch the man you loved slip away from you to where in the end he didn't know you. However, she found the strength to be what Ronald Reagon needed the most, right through to the end.

Now, let's hope that she has the strength to carry on without him. When she finally had all that she could take at the funeral and bent her head and wept, it touched me. My heart goes out to her and I wish her the best.

As for President Reagan, his fight is done. May he rest in peace.
