It felt good to be an American when Reagan spoke.

Man, ain't that the truth. The man truly loved America and wanted us to be the best nation on Earth. No excuses, no apologies.

I really miss everything that Reagan embodied and represented. The man was a living legend and a symbol to days gone. There will be another one, it's just a same that we have to endure Obama to get another Reagan.

1/19/09, the last day of Free America.
Pericles "Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it. "

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --Samuel Adams

It's something I wish I could have been part of.

You know, down the hall and up the stairs from this office is the part of the White House where the presidents and his family live. There are a few favorite windows I have up there that I like to stand and look out of early in the morning. The view is over the grounds here to the Washington Monument, and then the Mall and the Jefferson Memorial. But on mornings when the humidity is low, you can see past the Jefferson to the river, the Potomac, and the Virginia shore. Someone said that's the view Lincoln had when he saw the smoke rising from the Battle of Bull Run. I see more prosaic things: the grass on the banks, the morning traffic as people mark their way to work, now and then a sailboat on the river.

I've been thinking a bit at that window. I've been reflecting on what the past eight years have meant and mean. And the image that comes to mind like a refrain is a nautical one - a small story about a big ship, and a refugee and a sailor. It was back in the early eighties, at the height of the boat people. And the sailor was hard at work on the carrier Midway, which was patrolling the South China Sea. The sailor, like most American servicemen, was young, smart, and fiercely observant. The crew spied on the horizon a leaky little boat. And crammed inside were refugees from Indochina hoping to get to America. The Midway sent a small launch to bring them to the ship and safety. As the refugees made their way through the choppy seas, one spied the sailor on deck and stood up and called out to him. He yelled, "Hello, American sailor. Hello, freedom man."

A small moment with a big meaning, a moment the sailor, who wrote it in a letter, couldn't get out of his mind. And when I saw it, neither could I. Because that's what it was to be an American in the 1980s. We stood, again, for freedom. I know we always have, but in the past few years the world again, and in a way, we ourselves - rediscovered it.

That quote, of the many from him, has to be one of the best.

It was, and still is so inspirational to hear him speak. Not just because of what he said, but how he said it. You could literally feel his passion for America, his desire to remake is into the great beacon of hope...the embodiment of freedom.

One of my most cherished possessions is a letter written to me from him, in response to a letter I had written to him in 1982. The man actually took the time to personally hand write a letter back to me. And then in 1984, I had the honor and privilege of meeting him in person, just outside of the oval office.

It blows my mind how true the things he said were even today. I am not exaggerating at all. I could not stop thinking how much I agreed with everything he said.

What America needs is Ronald Regan 2, and then to populate Congress with a bunch of him also. I wouldn't mind replacing some governors and state legislature with him either.

I have never been more proud to be an American when I was listening to him. He is the first politician I have heard that didn't sound like he was full of shit. His speeches should be required reading/listening before getting into high school.

-Gerald Ford/Thomas Jefferson

"A Republic, if you can keep it"
