Re: Watching The Gipper Go By

I was with Jordan last night at the procession and viewing. It was so moving to see what different people took away from Reagan’s presidency. We met so many great people who came from all over the country (and France) to be there and went on to celebrate Reagan’s legacy with pints and burgers at the Dubliner afterwards. As our group was entering the Capitol, I met a woman named Angelie. We had been standing for four hours, but she didn’t seem to notice at all. She works for McDonald’s in DC and is waiting to hear if she will get a job at the FBI. She told me how happy she was to vote for Reagan when she turned 18 and again four years later. She’s lived in the District her whole life. Last night was her first time inside the Capitol.
