A Statue I Would Erect

Ronald Reagan –
I would erect a similar statue of Jeff Boreman
On May 26, 2010, I received the note below from a co-worker. We had many heated political debates. Occasionally after such a discussion, I would think about the issue in the evening and write a little about it and the next day give him what I had written. We could never agree about much politically, but we valued and respected each other, and I feel developed a strong friendship. In some ways, a cordiality born of controversy is indelibly stamped “Genuine and Durable” in a way that friendships based on agreement and accord never can. He would call me out on my logic, my facts, my beliefs, my prejudices; but never disrespected me as a person—and thus, in a mysterious way, our respect for one another increased. Perhaps we grew even to have a little sympathy for one another being trapped as it were in our own points of view. In any case, I began my blog that very day and have posted to it nearly every day since. It has come to mean a lot to me proving once again that in many ways Jeff understood me better than I understood myself.

As often we may disagree on political issues, I still find your writings ennobling. Below are a couple of links to start your very own blog. I think you should look into this.
