Thirty years ago, on the 40th anniversary of the D-Day landings, Ronald Reagan delivered one of the most iconic speeches of his presidency.
Speaking from Normandy, Reagan commemorated the sacrifices and heroism of the Allied soldiers who stormed the beaches of Normandy in 1944 in what has become known as “The Boys of Pointe du Hoc” speech. The speech was written by Peggy Noonan, who now is a columnist for the Wall Street Journal.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
