The tenth anniversary of Ronald Reagan's death
« on: June 05, 2014, 11:51:33 PM »
Today is the tenth anniversary of Ronald Reagan's passing.

Of course, the most terrible tragedy was not the moment of death per se--that is something that is (ultimately) unavoidable for all of us--but the circumstances surrounding his death.  More specifically, there is little that is more terrible than Alzheimer's disease--which Reagan had, and which eventually took his life--since it robs one of one's very essence.  It is, in effect, a living death.

He was a man. Take him for all in all.
I shall not look upon his like again.
