Since hearing the news of former President Ronald Reagan's passing, I've been trying to write something that adequately expresses my sense of loss, and the profound influence his example played in my life.

I cannot find the words. But Bob Lonsberry and James Lileks seem to understand.

Thanks for the links.
I didn't vote for the man, but looking back on him I admire what he accomplished.
His optimism lifted the entire nation, and much of the world that takes its lead from america.
Before Reagan, public moods were depressed, there was very little national pride. Because of the man, the whole world seemed to change for the better.
