    Just a little voice from the past to perhaps lend a small voice to the future. While some may not like the man to this day, perhaps the belief that we are still a great nation if only we work together, then perhaps there is a bright future afterall.

    I don't understand now and I didn't understand then why great speakers are so few and far between. Reagan had a gift. I could write speeches like that, and give them..I don't get why so few politicians or just people aren't capable of it. I think it must be because people have stopped having lofty ideals, and have stopped believing that there is merit in freedom, there is honor in protecting it, and it's okay to set a good example and be a strong voice in the world.

    Allie, I for one tend to think that our nation is just as strong and capable as it once was. I do believe however that the kinds of people that provide the inspiration be they a Reagan or a Kennedy, etc. are still out there somewhere, they are now lost in a high pitch drone of noise. Just take for example the young generation of Amerricans who have literally exhausted themselves in places like Iraq and Afghanistanand have done so with merit and with quiet honor. I am proud of each and every single one of them. We NEED these Americans NOW more than ever to step forward and have the courage to lead and tell the ones who have their own interests to sit down. We are still a great nation , it just takes the courage to stand up. I remain hopeful of the bright future our nation has, but it is up to each of us to see to it that the large voices of the past are heard once more in the new voices of today .. Just a thought.
