On This Day…

“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”

Depending on whom you ask, President Reagan can inspire courage and decisiveness, or he can inspire vitriolic frustration.  A couple weeks ago, my bus driver spent most of the trip home lamenting the years of the Reagan administration.  And it is so easy to remember Iran-Contra, point fingers and enjoy a healthy dose of American guilt.  It makes it easier to sit back and, well, do nothing. 

Blame always conceals inaction – it’s won elections for years.   Bold leadership, like what we saw that day, can change the world.
