Ronald Reagan
A Man For The Ages

To My Favorite President, Ronald Reagan:

     You recently thanked us for granting you the great honor of serving as our president. I am writing to assure you that we the people of America are most thankful for your honorable service. You were, by far, the best president of my lifetime. You entered office at a time when our country was reeling from the devastation of Vietnam and Watergate and you lifted the American Spirit. Your unwavering faith in God and Country inspired a Renewed sense of confidence, hope and optimism in the American way of life.. In 1980, people were saying that America was finished as a world leader. Our nation was plagued by a lack of direction and out-of-control inflation. American prestige abroad was at an all-time low. The morale and readiness of our military was in a total state of shambles, the cold war was raging, patriotism was in decline and communism was on the rise. But your presidency changed everything! You contributed more to the cause of freedom and world peace than any leader who has ever lived. What a legacy! I salute you.  Your countrymen salute you. The people of the world salute you. Thank you, Mr. President!

This tribute was read by Michael Reagan on his syndicated radio show on his dads 85th birthday!

Happy Birthday, John Finn!

 On July 23, 2009, John will be 100 years old.
On that infamous day, December 7, 1941, while everyone else was running
and ducking for cover, John stood out in the open and shot back at the
attacking enemy aircraft. He was seriously wounded over and over again, but
he stood his ground and refused to run. For his heroic actions, John Finn was
awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

These are the final words from the recording "Gallant Men" by Senator
Everett Dirksen, "Tyrants must know, now just as then, they cannot stand;
not as long as there are gallant men."

To the most gallant man I know; thank you, John. God Bless You Sir!

We The People of Faith

We the People of Faith have the right, the duty and the obligation to be involved in every area of public life, because we are the public!

We will not be denied involvement in our Government, because we are the government of the people, by the people, and for the people!

We will not be separated or segregated from the activities of the State, because
we are part of the State!

We are not second-class citizens.  We have the absolute right to express ourselves and to pray when and where we want.  It is called free speech, and is protected by the First Amendment!

The term "separation of church and state" is not found anywhere in
our Constitution.  Therefore, all Government business is our business!

We the people of faith will not be still!

We the people of faith will not be silenced!

Please Read the Prayer for Our Nation Here


As a young girl, I grew up in a small town in New Jersey.  Every patriotic holiday I remember my father unfolding the American Flag and hanging it outside our home.  I learned how to respect the flag.  You never let it touch the ground, and you always brought it in before sundown. I loved our colors -- red, white, and blue!  Whenever possible I wore the colors.  They were my very favorite. More than the colors, I loved what they represented.

You see, in 1937, Benito Mussolini was the "Government" of Italy.  He had established a fascist regime that valued socialism, nationalism, and militarism; and held close control on individuals through strict censorship and state propaganda.  My grandfather had been working in the US for a while, saving enough money to bring his wife and children here from Italy. With the help of other family members they relocated to Brooklyn, New York.

My Dad was sixteen years old, the second youngest of five children.  He didn't speak English and neither did most of his family.  They arrived at Ellis Island and were processed along with other immigrant families.  To learn English, my Dad had to begin by sitting in the first grade until he mastered the language. He then attended a technical high school and learned the carpentry trade.

I learned from him that the flag represented the freedom to speak and to live what one believed.   He was proud to enter the Army when the war broke out in 1941, and he fought overseas against the country he had been born in, because he was now an American who believed in the freedom his former countrymen no longer had.  Freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom of assembly were the "pearls of great price" that were worth fighting for.

He believed in God and was a member of both the American Legion and the Catholic War Veterans. His God was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God of Israel; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- our Lord Jesus Christ.  It was his strong love of God, love of country, and love of family that was passed on to me.

"Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord." (Psalm 33)

Our nation was built by many, many, men and women like my father.  Men and women of all races, all religions, all beliefs and no beliefs. Other than Native American Indians, we all came from someplace other than these shores.  Our forefathers came with little more than Bible in hand and developed the Law of the Land based on the Law of God's Word. In a little more than 200 years this country became more advanced and prosperous than countries that had existed for centuries. A coincidence? I don't believe in coincidences.

God knows all of us. He made Protestants, Catholics, Jews, Buddhists and Moslems, but He made us  with the intent that we would come to know Him and love Him and serve Him and worship Him as Creator and Lord.  We are His creation and He is desperately calling to us, not only to love Him but to love one another. I pray that we all come to know our Lord, our Creator, the God of the Universe and the Bible -- Jesus Christ.  May He continue to bless this country and may we never forget where we have all come from and the price that has been paid by so many to keep us where we are.

God Bless America
