Ronald Wilson Reagan was born on February 6, 1911 and died on June 5, 2004. Ronald was an American politician who served as the 40th President of the United States.
I think that this is becoming less and less of something that people think of when they do things and they’re doing more and more things without thinking that, “Hey this just might get my ass thrown in jail.” OR “If I do this I’ll be a felon.” People think that they’re justified with their actions like the people who are “protesting” by looting, breaking and entering and vandalizing places. Should they not be held accountable? Is it somehow justified because a bad police officer killed a man? Then of course there’s that police officer or now ex police officer…what was he thinking when he was kneeling on George Floyd’s neck as he had not been resisting arrest. That ex officer and the others involved should be held accountable for their actions. We really need to take a serious look at the law and who is doing what and how we’re sentencing people and how that affects victims. I get that George was being placed under arrest for suspected forgery or trying to pass off a fake bill but that should not have led to his death and it sure as hell shouldn’t have led to all the crap that’s going on right now. I understand people are upset and agree with peaceful protesting and trying to have Minneapolis do the right thing by George and his family but to a certain extent I think if people outside of his family want to be involved or want to change laws then there’s peaceful demonstrations, there’s running for office, there’s contacting the people in charge of the police, courts, etc and making sure good people are put into place. There’s also making a group, a charitable group, one with lawyers, police and others that want to change how police treat people of color. If you want equality then do it right. Something hasn’t been done right with it if after so many years we’re still fighting about it. Perhaps it’s time to change that and figure out how we can get the equality for race, religion, for sexual preference, for genders. We are all human. And if we do wrong we should be held accountable for our actions.
Ronald Reagan had once stated this and I do believe it is true. People should try to do good and not just do good to get credit but be decent to each other. Doing things to help one another can go a long way. It’s like the butterfly affect when you do something good and they pay it forward then we can have more good in this world and then the world would be a better place.
I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and during that time Ronald Reagan was our President and I found him to be very likable. I believe in what he said that we cannot help everyone, not one person can but one person can help someone else and so on and so forth. People should help if they can and do it without needing recognition, do it just to be decent. As I stated earlier we should be helping instead of hurting.
