July 4th



Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction.  It is not ours by way of inheritance; it much be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.  Ronald Reagan

Happy Independence Day.

President Reagan was a wise man. Happy Independence Day to you, too.

Insightful words which, unfortunately, will fall on many deaf ears. I'm embarrassed to say that when Regan was running for President I wondered what experience an actor had to think he could be President. But boy did he prove me and many others wrong. And because of remembering that when Donald J. Trump ran for office I never questioned what he could bring to the table. If only we had either of them in office now our America would be in a better shape.

President Reagan was a wonderful leader. His words still ring true today.

I love that quote. California was an incredible place when he was our governor. I hope you had a nice day.

I loved Reagan and miss men with his leadership ability and his living experience to get our country back where it truly will be great again. Where are those leaders...men or women?? Love the quote and I hope you had a nice holiday weekend up North!

Exactly. But such a vast difference in how each generation describes freedom.

A man for his time...in so many venues. I never questioned
Nancy's adoring look at her husband...the White House "sparkled" with quiet elegance and he brought presidential pride to our Nation.
