Reagan Remembrance

June 17, 2004

I think a fitting tribute for President Reagan would be a new holiday similar to Presidents Day. This could be combined with a holiday for Franklin Roosevelt. Both presidents helped rid the world of tyranny in the 20th century: Reagan obliterated communism and Roosevelt ended the Nazi threat. Roosevelt was born on Jan. 30 (1882) and Reagan on Feb. 6 (1911), so their birthdates are close. The holiday could be set as the first Monday in February or the last Friday in January. A suggested name for the holiday: Victory Over Tyranny Day.
