Who is Ronald Reagan?
This comes from Reagan’s second inaugural address.
Another great quote from this address of Reagan:
And there is another area where the Federal Government can play a part. As an older American, I remember a time when people of different race, creed, or ethnic origin in our land found hatred and prejudice installed in social custom and, yes, in law. There is no story more heartening in our history than the progress that we have made toward the “brotherhood of man” that God intended for us. Let us resolve there will be no turning back or hesitation on the road to an America rich in dignity and abundant with opportunity for all our citizens.
Let us resolve that we the people will build an American opportunity society in which all of us–white and black, rich and poor, young and old–will go forward together arm in arm. Again, let us remember that though our heritage is one of blood lines from every corner of the Earth, we are all Americans pledged to carry on this last, best hope of man on Earth.
I fear that the citizenry of the United States may at times forget such things, and revert to the times Reagan speaks of in the first quoted paragraph above. Resolve to do as his second paragraph. The United States of America will be better for it.
Remember, you can also now get the following t-shirts (and others!) from our new store!
