Ronald Reagan: February 6, 1911 - June 5, 2004

The news must have broke while I was napping, 'cause I just woke up and it's already over many of my friends' LJs, but I'll go ahead and recognize it here, too.

Ronald Reagan: Feburary 6, 1911 - June 5, 2004

Due to his suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Reagan has been out of the public light for quite some time. I know many of you reading this loved him as a President. I also know that many of you didn't care for him much at all. I fall in the former category and mourn his passing. Perhaps if you didn't care for his politics, you can remember and enjoy one of the movies he was in before moving to a political career. Regardless, I think we can all agree that Reagan had a large impact on the recent history of the United States and the world. Out of respect, I am going to be refraining from joining the inevitable debates over Reagan's policies that will no doubt be popping up over the next few hours and days. There will be enough smart people on both sides of the debate chiming in as it is, no doubt.
