Remembering “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan

Considering the chaos of the nasty political quagmire we find ourselves schlepping through every time the news comes on these days, I thought we might want to take a look back and perhaps, remember just who the heck we are as a nation.

There was a man once who said “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” Some of us remember that day with tears in our eyes.

And you know what?

The wall DID come down, opening a whole world up to millions of people who had dreamed of freedom for a lifetime, yearning for that gleaming ideal. It isn’t perfect but the people get to CHOOSE.

As we seethe and boil in our skins from the infighting in our own government I hope we can step away from it for a moment to look back and remember a time when we saw things a bit more clearly.

This video is about half an hour so I hope you can find the time to make yourself something to drink and watch this for your own edification. I was awestruck at the raw truth in this mans words.

That’s it for today. I hope we can all find it in our hearts to remember that our neighbor is our neighbor. Treat each other like the brothers and sisters we are. Do something kind for someone today and you’ll feel better about your own self. Teach your kids to do the same.

Comments are welcome. Keep the faith yall!

Peace,

Lee
