“I, in my own mind, have always thought of America as a place in the divine scheme of things that was set aside as a promised land. It was set here and the price of admission was very simple: the means of selection was very simple as to how this land should be populated. Any place in the world and any person from those places; any person with the courage, with the desire to tear up their roots, to strive for freedom, to attempt and dare to live in a strange and foreign place, to travel halfway across the world was welcome here.”

Ronald Wilson Reagan
February 6, 1911 – June 5, 2004
40th President of the United States
February 6, 2011 marks the Centennial of Ronald Reagan’s birth. Reagan was unquestionably the greatest President of my lifetime, and in my opinion, the greatest President of the 20th Century. For the month of February, 2011, we present “28 Days of Ronald Reagan” featuring a daily tribute. We’ll include his wit, and his wisdom and some of our favorite stories.
