Ronald Reagan’s statue was unveiled this week at the U.S. Capital. Nancy Reagan was back in the Rotunda for the first time since Reagan laid in state following his death.
Nancy Reagan was her typical humorous, unassuming self. She has been a stellar example of class and dignity in her post-White House years.
“You created that secure space from which he ventured forth to change America and to change the world,” Reagan’s friend and treasury secretary, James Baker III, told her. “As this ceremony honors him, Nancy, it also honors you.”
President Reagan embodied everything that makes a man a great President. He was willing to work with the other side to advance an agenda of peace through strength on the foreign policy front while expanding economic growth through his supply-side agenda on the domestic front. Most of all, he inspired a nation to see itself as the “shining city on a hill.”
Thank you Nancy, for sharing such a great man with the rest of the nation and the world.
