      There is a concerning lack of knowledge among today's students about significant historical events like D Day and the sacrifices made during World War 2. This issue bothers the speaker, who believes that parents, especially conservatives, should take a more active role in educating their children about these important topics.

      The legacy of President Ronald Reagan extends beyond his political achievements and continues to inspire and educate young conservatives through the efforts of organizations like the Reagan Library and the Reagan Ranch. During World War II, Reagan's troops did not seek to conquer and plunder, but to restore what had been taken unjustly. This spirit of freedom and democracy is still celebrated and passed down to new generations through the educational programs and historical preservation initiatives of these organizations. President Reagan was the first to speak on D-Day in Normandy, France, and his speeches continue to be a source of inspiration for young conservatives today. The Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California, and the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, offer opportunities for students to learn about Reagan's life and legacy firsthand. The Young America's Foundation, which bought the Reagan Ranch in 1998, has made significant strides in preserving and sharing the history of the ranch and Reagan's childhood home in Illinois. Reagan's speeches and the work of these organizations serve as a reminder of the importance of freedom, democracy, and the sacrifices made by our military to protect these values. By continuing to educate and inspire young conservatives, Reagan's legacy lives on.
