My thoughts on “Killing Reagan ”
Early this morning or late last night I finished reading the book, “Killing Reagan.” I have mixed feelings on the book. There are parts I like and uplift the late President but there are other parts in the book which I question and or I fear will be used by the left to discredit the former leader of the free world.
The book says there were times Reagan was confused after the attempt was made on his life. If that is the case why didn’t the media pick up on it. We all know most in the media hates the politics of those on the right. One would think they would jump at a chance to bring a right leading President down. So I do question that part of the book.
The book points out Ronald Reagan saw his job as a mission from God after his life was almost taken. The attempt on his life changed him as a person. He even suggested to Nancy one Sunday morning they attend church which they seldom did. We all know it is hard for the leader in the White- House to attend church. All the things that has to be done to keep the first family safe. It seems President Reagan embraced the fact that God spared his life for a reason.
A thing which I was sorry to read in the book is the former First Lady Nancy Reagan depended a lot on astrology. The Reagan’s belonged to a Bible teaching church in CA. So one would think they would have trusted 100% in the Bible and it’s author. The Bible calls those of us who are followers of Christ not to look to the stars but to look to the true star who’s birth we honor next month.
Before I read this book I thought Ronald Reagan was the greatest President of my life time. Even though there are parts in the book which I question or even challenge I still view Ronald Wilson Reagan as the best soul to ever be elected leader of the freed world while I lived. It is my hope this book will be used to help Reagan’s name and his policy ideas to once again become popular. Though as I wrote above I do fear the left will use part of the book to bring a good and Godly man down who is no longer with us to defend himself or his ideas.
God bless the name Reagan.
