The Reagan Centennial Super Bowl Tribute Video

This marvelous video honoring the centennial of President Reagan's birth will be shown today prior to the Super Bowl kickoff:

This brief look back at some of the significant events of the Reagan Presidency caused me to tear up with pride and gratitude. Perhaps there's an irony in that these clips underscore that for President Reagan, it was always all about celebrating America, not himself. What a man, and what a nation.

More to enjoy today (updated periodically): 22 Minutes of Reagan-Wallace interviews...Reagan, Gorbachev, and the Statue of Liberty...Happy Birthday from Ed Morrissey...the Official Reagan Centennial Website...Warner Archive offers free streaming of Reagan's film SECRET SERVICE OF THE AIR (1939) through tomorrow...Speechwriter Peter Robinson remembers "Tear Down This Wall"...Some of Reagan's words on "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"...a heartfelt tribute from Millie at Classic Forever...J.E. Dyer muses on Reagan's 1981 Inaugural speech and "Morning in America." Like J.E., I watched that speech with a crowd of college students -- in my case on a Flemish TV station in a hotel lobby in Brussels, Belgium. After the Inaugural, we went to the Grand Plaza, overjoyed that the hostages had been freed in Iran...

What a wonderful video, Laura! Thank you for sharing it. It sent chills down my spine and brought a tear to my eye. What a great man. Although I didn't watch the big game this year, it makes me so happy to know that they included this well-done video to honor our late president.
