Picture Trivia
          The 40th president of the United States of America, Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911-2004), is considered by majority American public opinion as one of the “best president” of their nation. In his own public admission, President Reagan said he has learned a lot from his best friend, Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos regarding statesmanship and leadership. Foremost among these is to put the welfare of the majority over and above those of the ruling elite or the oligarchy.           Writing down a diary of each day of his presidency, all accounts of events and incidents, is an advice that he followed from Marcos. The collection of the accounts in his diary, published on May 2007 and titled The Reagan Diaries, became a bestseller.
          Remember that on his first term as president, on March 30, 1981, there was an assassination attempt on his life. The bullet barely missed his heart. Reagan is the first U.S. president that lived after an assassination attempt. After this, Reagan gained the highest approval rating in the history of U.S. presidency, and was elected for a second term.

Quote of the Day
“We used to pride ourselves on being a generation of fighters. Today, we are called upon to become a generation of builders. Our mission is to build these foundations that will replace the bamboo supports of our agricultural economy, in the phrase of Rizal, with the bases of concrete and steel on which can rest a modern civilization and a fuller life of our people. This is central to the task of development.” – President Ferdinand E. Marcos.
