While Americans will have opposing views on President Reagan, I am proud to say I miss Uncle Ronnie…but not as much as Nancy.
For some reason on this day I am thinking of a Presidential second inaugural, that of Ronald Reagan! He summed up the theme of his Presidency well with this observation in his speech that day:

But in another sense, our new beginning is a continuation of that beginning created two centuries ago when, for the first time in history, government, the people said, was not our master, it is our servant; its only power that which we the people allow it to have.

I agree on your observation that we will never see his likes again… He was an American.
I miss him too, he was always one of my favorites. Did you happen to notice the US Navy ad on tv? The number 76 aircraft carrier is the USS Ronald Reagan.
No way I could miss that! And if you ever are blessed to visit his library here, bring lits of Kleenex…
