A Review Of A Moment In Time

We drove a black, 2006, Chrysler PT Cruiser north from Los Angeles on the busy San Diego Freeway (Interstate 405) to highway 101 north (Ventura Highway) to Simi Valley, California.

There, we invested four hours to experience the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It was an uplifting day as we reviewed the life history and political times of this former president.

The top picture is me standing in front of a giant flag in the Pavilion.

The middle picture shows retired Air Force One 27000 that was placed into service in August 1972 and decommissioned in September 2001. This plane flew seven U. S. presidents - Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, H. W. Bush, Clinton, W. Bush. We toured this plane in the Air Force One Pavilion after experiencing memorabilia, pictures, film clips, and much more about the life of Ronald Reagan.

A Boeing 747 now serves as Air Force One 28000.

The bottom picture is Ronald Wilson Reagan's final resting place which is on the grounds of the library. There are many people from around the world who visit this interesting place.

Notice Mr. Reagan's summary message contained in twenty-seven words:

"I know in my heart that man is good

That what is right will eventually triumph

And there is purpose and worth to each and every life"

Return here on Wednesday, August 2 for a blog update.

Have a good day!
