LLLeindecker & Associates ~ President's Day, and President Reagan of My Generation 

. . .here he is, my, and yes I say my president.  I claim President Reagan probably because of the Western White House located in Santa Barbara County [my hometown].  I remember every time I would fly home from New York and pass through our small airport.  I would pass through the gift shop and there you would find those souvenir pens, you know those pens whose barrels/cylinders float an item.  Our pens floated Air Force One,  I still have a pen or two around.   Perhaps I claim  the President  because I graduated in communication, and also studied films at UC Santa Barbara.  Perhaps because of the famous West Berlin speech he gave ~ and that famous line to Mikhail Gorbachev:  "Tear Down This Wall" referring to the Communist wall which had been built in August 1961.  I think it is a bit of all of the above.  I respected Reagan as a communicator, and as I hold a degree in this field I continue to respect his talent.

I believe President Reagan was the President of my generation, my Republican generation.  This quote clearly conveys to me his mantra, and has become a part of mine.  On this day that we remember all Presidents, I say ~ Happy Birthday ~  to them  all, and  let's honor them in perhaps a ~ thank you ~ not necessarily a shopping spree.  However, being the business woman, that I am, I would like to end on this note.  This is America and we do promote commerce  ~ we just need to remember what today truly is about, and not lose sight.  Merely my opinion, laura.
