Ronald Reagan – The Gold Standard for Presidential Character

18 October 2015 AD


Excerpt from The Reagan Diaries, Friday, March 13, 1981

“Flew into La Guardia then helicoptered around the lower tip of Manhattan and landed on a heli-pad on the lower west side. The usual lengthy motorcade with police closing off intersections and taking us traffic free through town. One thing was unusual and very humbling; the streets were lined with people as if for a parade all the way to the Waldorf. They cheered & clapped and I wore my arms out waving back to them.

I keep thinking this can’t continue and yet their warmth & affection seems so genuine I get a lump in my throat. I pray constantly that I won’t let them down.”

Imagine a president that prays constantly he will not let you down. Imagine.

John White
