By becoming a reader, young people everywhere can learn to stand up and defend their beliefs.

Reagan: Know what you believe and know why you believe it. That’s the best message I could ever give to any conservative.
My father knew what he believed and why he believed it, but how did he get there? He got there because my father was a ferocious reader, a reader of everything. How many times have you walked into someone’s home, into their library, and saw books in their library that they never ever opened or read, but they’re only there to impress you?
Well, my father had books in his library also, but every single one of those books he had read and reread more than a dozen times. He knew everything that was in them, from one end of the book to the other end of the book.
You can say about my father, he was knowledgeable and knew what he believed and why he believed it for one reason. He believed readers were leaders, and if you become a reader, you’ll become a leader just like Ronald Reagan.
