President Ronald Wilson Reagan, 1911-2004
Will VehrsIt is difficult to add to anything new to the outpouring of tributes to our 40th President. His optimism, srong beliefs, and humanity are being well-chronicled by those who knew him and those who covered his career.
My most vivid memory was that November night in 1980 when the election returns showed that the man so many had underestimated for so long would win the presidency. I felt a sense of excitement and possibility for the nation that I have not felt before or since.
He was an ordinary man who attained extraordinary greatness. He was an American original.
May President Reagan rest in peace. May we somehow recapture his sense of optimism, even as we disagree on the means of attaining "that shining city on a hill."
