Reagan Gets Statue

Today, the new bronze statue of Ronald Reagan was unveiled in the Capitol building while Nancy looked on. The last time she had been in the rotunda was five years ago when Dutch's casket was lying in state.

The sculptor, Chas Fagan, made sure he made it a fitting tribute to the late president. The top edge of the statue is laced with fragments from the Berlin Wall. On the back of the statue is a quote from Ronnie:

"America's best days are yet to come. Our proudest moments are yet to be. Our most glorious achievements just ahead."

The ceremony was also attended by Nancy "I was misled" Pelosi (D-CA), present Speaker of the House. She helped Mrs. Reagan to her feet and later helped escort her off the stage. I guess she wasn't about to have the other Nancy steal the spotlight.

What an awesome way to pay tribute to the man who inspired a whole block of nations to forgo Communism and opt for freedom. This is something I hope to one day show my children and tell them what a great man Ronald Reagan was. His legacy changed the world.
