Der Rufer (The Crier) by Francesco Petrarch
“I wander through the world and cry ‘Peace, peace, peace.’”
In front of the Berlin Wall (West Side).
We welcome change and openness; for we believe that freedom and security go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace. There is one sign the Soviets can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
Reagan was the President when I started paying attention to the world around me. He’s been my hero since. He stood up for America. Talked about the evils in the world. There are things that I don’t like that occurred under his watch. But overall, I have nothing but respect for Reagan. He put America back in a leadership position on the World Scene. He made it ok to be proud to be an American.
My opinion. We need another Reagan now. The Liberals are once more destroying our national pride. Someone who can lead our nation into the future with certainty and pride and a vision of greatness, goodness and hope.
