Mount Rushmore needs to be revisited to include Ronald Reagan!

Ramesh C. Reddy
Pittsburgh Standard

The number 40 brings so many things into my mind. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights when the first flood wiped out everyone except Noah’s family. The Israelites wandered the desert for 40 years because of their disobedience after being liberated by God from Egypt. Jesus was tempted in the desert for 40 days by Satan and overcame temptation using the Word of God. Jesus appeared to his disciples for 40 days after His resurrection.

There has been 40 days between lent and Easter. Rick Warren wrote a book called the ‘Purpose Driven Life’ to be used for 40 days to grow strong in the Lord. The University of Pittsburgh men’s basketball team, the Pittsburgh Panthers won 40 games in a row at home in 2004. I have been blessed to be able to write a book called ’40 days of Jamming with Joy in Jesus’

Most recently, it reminds me of the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Wilson Reagan who has gone to be with the Lord on Saturday. Reagan suffered from Alzheimer’s disease for the past ten years and died of Pneumonia in his home in California. Reagan was 93 years old!

He was the first American president I came to know about when I first came from India. Once I was so excited when I received the Presidential Academic Award signed by Reagan. He became my favorite president as I loved his charm and his pursuit of ending Communism and the Cold War among many of his conservative ideals and policies. Reagan has been credited as the U.S president responsible for the fall of Communism in many countries, the end of the Cold War, and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

 America has lost a great president since the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln was gunned down. Let us remember the man who made so many changes and affected America in a positive way.

Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, Republican, or Independent you have to look at the legacy that Reagan left behind. It is amazing when you think about Reagan winning a landslide victory taking 49 of the 50 states during his re-run for the presidency. He enjoyed the highest popularity rating after leaving office.

It is time Mount Rushmore be revisited not just for sight seeing the presidents whose faces are carved there but to include our late beloved former president Reagan’s face on it. Whatever has to happen needs to happen so this can become a reality.

In closing, I will miss Reagan’s charm and kind heartedness. He is the one that had wonderful people working for him such as his wife Nancy Reagan and so many others who believed in what he wanted to accomplish. The nation has lost a great former president. If the memorial is made public, everyone should try to attend it at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
