By now the insane amount of media coverage should have seeped through to even the least aware of America regarding the death of former President Ronald Reagan. I will admit, I am not nor have ever been a Reagan fan. However, I do respect the man for the impact he has made on the United States and the world. However, I do question why many in the media and elsewhere are talking about how this is such a sad time for America. My prayers are with his family and friends as they mourn the loss of a loved one, but I do not think it sad that a man who lived a rich and full life and has been suffering for at least 10 years with a horrible disease is finally at peace and now in a much better place. This is not something to be sad about at all. His accomplishments should be celebrated (as should those of anyone who has had such a life). I have seen my grandmother go through a similar struggle with Parkinson’s disease. I will be very sad when she passes, but I will also be so happy that she is no longer suffering and that she is with my grandfather again.
