"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Reagan's journey I watched the journey of Reagan's casket down Constitution Avenue to the Capitol Rotunda, and the remarks made there today. I teared up at least three times, which seems odd for someone who can't remember any of his presidency. But I do remember the results of it--the falling of the Berlin Wall, the pride that the word "America" instills, and the reshaping of American politics around conservative principles. Without my knowing it, Reagan shaped me more than any other political figure of the 20th century, and I thank him for it. I just wish he had been around for the last decade of it.
