Freedom indeed is a fragile thing. So many people sacrificed themselves all these years so that all of us have it and enjoy it. Yet, these days, hatred and belittling are becoming the typical headlines in the news. I hope that all of us will stand up against these undermining elements, be respectful of others as equal human beings, and protect what seems to be so fragile these days.

These quotes are very timely, a forceful reminder of American historic ideals.

It's really amazing how much has changed in my lifetime, what kind of men the US has elected President, even from the same political party. I fully believe that much of what we think of as normal and acceptable we learn well before we hit age 30 (possibly much much younger), as exemplified by President Reagan's quotes above. Those lessons that he learned from his parent's informed all the decisions for the rest of his life, and ultimately affected how he chose to lead.
I've not read deeply about our current President's formative years, but given the current behavioral examples it seems that he learned early on 'the biggest dog wins' which is a pretty dangerous way to lead.

I'm 30 years old and to be honest, I don't know much about Mr. Regan until recently... The more & more I study about personal development, religion, history, life, etc- I found that many people reference Mr. Regan in a good light.

I could not agree more from his quotes above... what a righteous man. I'm certainly compelled to learn more about him in and applicate his great virtues. Thanks Anand

Remember the words of Martin Niemöller ‘....Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.'
and George Santayana 'Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.'

Thanks, many years later much of what Reagan said seems very sage. It turns out that he was a great patriot with a lot of common sense.

How would you feel if this sign was posted in your own country:: Dogs and Chinese Not Allowed. --- Shanghai, China. Cir 1920-3x. Or "White Only" in Africa and some parts of the USA? I would think the Irishmen felt pretty lucky then.

If you visit Angel Island, you would also realize Asians were not so lucky either in this country. The Chinese Exclusion Act was not repealed until the late 1930s. The impacts actual affected Japanese, Indians and other Asians as well.

We have some pretty tainted history in this country starting before cowboys and Indians. We need to continually fight for our freedom or freedom will be eroded. Stay active and be vigilant.

Reagan was a true conservative of the heart, and a man of principle. He had a way of reminding us of who we really are, and how careful we needed to be about protecting the precious liberty of the US.
Completely unlike the utter fraud currently squatting in the white house.

honestly gun threat is a major concern for me to consider sending kid to U.S., totally with Reagan that it should never be the case that in a country where people so easily get the authorization to own and use a machine gun is wise.
