“You all knew that some things are worth dying for. One’s country is worth dying for, and democracy is worth dying for, because it’s the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man. All of you loved liberty. All of you were willing to fight tyranny, and you knew the people of your countries were behind you.”

–Ronald Reagan

    I love this quote from Reagan primarily because it gives you the personal and that unbelievable sense you are talking to the spirits of those who have given their lives. ..thank you for the quote. I wrote it down in my notes. Fr. Joseph Leppard, SJ

    Correct me if my recollection is fuzzy, but it’s quotes like this that remind me how selfless President Reagan’s speeches tended to be as opposed to our current Narcissist in Chief.
