President Ronald Reagan's tomb at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley CA.

Simi Valley is North of the Santa Monica Mountains and it is home of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. Standing at the simple semi circular tomb of the recently deceased president, and taking in the vistas of Simi Valley, I thought that if you have to die and be buried somewhere, this was a damn fine place to RIP. I didn’t go into the museum since that would have taken a long time and was full of school groups. I did visit the gift shop and got a couple of things for people that they might get a kick out of.

I have visited the graves on different occasions of Washington in Mt. Vernon, Kennedy at Arlington and now Reagan. Given that perhaps it has only been five months since Reagan died, though a decade since Alzheimer's took him, the gravesite doesn’t have the air of history or permanence like the others. The concrete walkways are new and not worn smooth by a million foot falls, the railings don’t have any of their patina taken from as many hands leaning on them. Give it time and I think that this would be as popular to visit as the others despite it’s relative remoteness. It is the poli sci degree in me, but I would come back and have a longer visit at the library at some time.

Carpe Diem
