Visiting Reagan's Humble and Inspiring Beginnings

Statement

Ronald Reagan once said, "While I take inspiration from the past, like most Americans, I live for the future." It's because I believe in America's future that I take such inspiration from our past. We just visited Ronald Reagan's childhood home in Dixon, Illinois. This beautiful small town along the Rock River is where Reagan learned the values that shaped him -- the same values that have historically made America strong -- thrift, hard work, fortitude, optimism, and courage in the face of adversity.

As a nation, we must reconnect with those values if we're to truly restore all that is good and strong about the USA. Meeting the fine Americans in this small town on the river where Reagan saved 77 lives brought all this home for me.

Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who keep Reagan's memory alive. The restoration and tours of our beloved President's home are significant. Thank you, Dixon!

- Sarah Palin
