(Video) Reagan's 1982 Christmas address

As part of his weekly radio address, Ronald Reagan read from a letter from US sailor who describing to his parents the rescue of dozens of Vietnamese boat people seeking freedom from oppression.
Well, I think that letter just about says it all. In spite of everything, we Americans are still uniquely blessed, not only with the rich bounty of our land but by a bounty of the spirit—a kind of year-round Christmas spirit that still makes our country a beacon of hope in a troubled world and that makes this Christmas and every Christmas even more special for all of us who number among our gifts the birthright of being an American.
