The day I held Nancy Reagan’s Hand

Nancy Reagan 

Nancy Reagan

It was a beautiful warm day in 1980, and hard to believe, thirty-five years ago, when I held another man’s wife by the hand. And of all things that woman was actually Nancy Reagan, the wife of the man who had just been nominated by the Republican’s to be their standard bearer for President of the United States of America, none other than Ronald Reagan.

I had really never thought much about it until listening to all of the pundits talk about Nancy on this, the day of her death. So when I thought about me, just one of, “the folks”, as Bill O’Reilly calls us, holding hands with Nancy Reagan, I thought, Wow! I need to let my grandkids know about this. Also maybe I should let my wife know about the incident after all of these years, though I am sure I told her at the time.

Ok, I won’t keep you waiting any longer; it was In Indianapolis at the State Capitol at an outside rally when Jerry Falwell was touring the State Capitols of America with a large singing group in Patriotic “God Save America Rallies” with the idea of getting out the Christian vote to send Ronald Reagan to the White House. There was a large crowd of pastors, Christians, conservatives, Republicans and just interested folks, and media, lots of media. All of the important politicians were there too. Apparently Nancy Reagan was meeting Jerry and his group at some of these rallies, at least she was at the one in Indianapolis. Jerry had the power in those days. His name was magic. In that I was the State Chairman of the Moral Majority in Indiana and the National Secretary, I was given a place of honor which put me standing next to Nancy Reagan.

At one point in the Program Jerry said that we were going to sing God Bless America and at about half way through the song, Jerry asked everyone to take the hand of the person next to them and raise them high in the air and sing the next verse, so I took Nancy by the hand, and we raised our hands together, and we sang with everyone else, God Bless America.
