I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. Thank you, my friends. May God always bless you.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2011
As America marks the 100th birthday of President Ronald Reagan, Nashville-based Dunham Books is set to release a unique photographic collection book honoring the life and legacy of our nation's 40th President. Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny (February 1, Dunham Books), written by former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, Callista Gingrich and David N. Bossie, eloquently illustrates through both words and photos how Reagan, throughout the many chapters of his life, never failed to display the character, integrity, and optimism that helped define him as one of the greatest leaders in modern history.
February 6, 2011 marks the 100th birthday of President Reagan and this book, inspired by Newt and Callista Gingrich and David Bossie's documentary film Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny, is a fitting tribute to one of the most admired and beloved figures in modern history.
Over three decades have passed since Ronald Reagan was first elected to the White House, yet the impact of his leadership is still evident today. While in office, President Reagan had three major goals--to restore the economy, to revive the American spirit, and to defeat the Soviet Union. Remaining true to his convictions and believing in the American people, Reagan accomplished these goals.
Yet, Ronald Reagan's legacy encompasses far more than his achievements as President. From his upbringing in Dixon, Illinois and the formulation of his belief in America as a land of opportunity, to his election as President of the Screen Actors Guild and career as spokesperson for General Electric, Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny captures in details the many chapters of President Reagan's life.
Through it all, Ronald Reagan was known for his optimism. Even as President Reagan shared his personal battle with Alzheimer's disease with the nation, he left a message of hope: "I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead. Thank you, my friends. May God always bless you."
Margaret Thatcher said it best upon President Reagan's passing, "We have one beacon to guide us that Ronald Reagan never had. We have his example".
"President Reagan continues to serve as a shining example of a principled leader who believed deeply in America and the American people" said David Dunham. "Through this photographic collection, we hope you will find renewed inspiration from a remarkable man who made a profound impact upon our nation and the world."
Thanks to Ronald Reagan, there is indeed a bright dawn ahead for America.
