Super Bowl of Birthdays

Today, as the only 6-time Super Bowl champions, the Pittsburgh Steelers, prepare to battle against the Green Bay Packers, we also celebrate the 100th birthday of the greatest American president since Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Wilson Reagan.

PITTSBURGH - DECEMBER 20: Mike Wallace #17 of the Pittsburgh Steelers runs for a touchdown as Jarrett Bush #24 of the Green Bay Packers attempts to tackle in the first quarter during the game on December 20, 2009 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Ronald Wilson Reagan, our 40th President

This Sunday millions of Americans will tune in to watch the Super Bowl – an annual highlight in the sporting world to decide the championship team in professional American football. But, before the game starts, they will remember Reagan, who would have been 100 years old this day. His life will be featured in a video homage, a tribute that seems to indicate that in the current turbulent times, Reagan is more beloved than ever, and thus, deserving of the highest appreciation that the sports-crazed country can dream up.

Happy 61st anniversary of your 39th birthday, Mr. President.

Thirty years after taking office and more than six years after his death, Ronald Reagan has recaptured the public imagination. Bookstores place his biography in their display windows, universities offer lecture series about his politics and Reagan followers throughout the country are planning parties to mark his birthday. One in three US citizens call him a historically outstanding president. Given how he lived his life, it is not surprising that Reagan has been able to add to his popularity even after death. He was born in 1911 in Tampico, Illinois, a town about 180 km west of Chicago with a current population of about 800. The son of an unsuccessful shoe salesman and a devout Christian mother, Reagan sought and always found a path to the top.

As a college student, he was elected student body president. After becoming an actor, he was elected president of Hollywood’s Screen Actors Guild, and as a politician he served two terms as governor of California before being elected US president. He had to work for his successes, paying for college by washing dishes, for example. After graduating, he gained prominence in the Midwestern US as a sports radio broadcaster, which ultimately led to his career as a film actor and national fame.

In his 50s, he decided to enter politics and finally won the presidency at the age of 69 in 1980 after two unsuccessful attempts to win his party’s nomination. In the 1980 presidential election, many voters made an issue of his age. But now that hardly figures in his legacy. What people remember is Reagan’s populism and that he brought new optimism to the country after many years of demoralising crises, including the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal and the Iran hostage crisis. Regan, who preferred to spend evenings at the White House in front of the television in his pajamas with his wife Nancy, has found his place in history as a man who stood for a healthy economy and family values.

Reagan died at the age of 93, June 5, 2004 at his home in California after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, having spent his final years almost completely out of the public eye. When he died, thousands waited for hours to pay tribute to him at the US Capitol and at his presidential library in California. source – New Kerala
