On June 26, 2009, Helen Buckholtz (my spouse) and I attended a screening of the film “Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny”
at the corporate headquarters of Jelly Belly
. I appreciated themes (in the introduction of the film, in the film, and question-and-answer after the film) including clarity of purpose, resolve to achieve significant goals (including economic recovery, dissolution of the Soviet Union, and restoration of optimism among Americans), achievement of goals, and willingness to negotiate and compromise to achieve goals.
People who introduced the film included Herman Rowland (of Jelly Belly) and Newt Gingrich and Callista Gingrich. The film was produced by Citizens United Foundation / Citizens United Productions.
Before the screening I had a brief opportunity to meet and talk with Newt Gingrich. I provided him some suggestions that might ‘make a difference’ for America.
Also, I am pleased to recall that Helen and I previously met people featured in the film.
