Wizbang has this posting in rememberance of Ronald Reagan who died on June 5, 2004. There are links to several of Reagan's speeches, and links to other sites on the web remembering the Great Communicator. One of the quotes posted is

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
