Back from hiatus...

I took the last little bit off from everything. After completing my degree I needed sometime to simply decompress so I've been working part time, reading a lot of fiction (good and bad), and lounging around my house. I also spent time at a professional conference. Now I'm ready to turn my brain back on and begin posting on a daily basis.

Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States has passed away. He is the first President that I remember and I consider him to be one of the best presidents this country has seen. He was a man who knew what he believed and was not afraid to live by those beliefs.

After the 1984 election I sent a little card and poem to the President congratulating him on his victory. I received a card back, signed by the President and First Lady, thanking me for my support. For a 10 year old kid this was pretty big stuff. I still have the card...
