We are all Gods children

Just after Reagan’s near-assassination in March 1981, when he thought he might be dying [he wrote in his diary]: “But I realized I couldn’t ask for Gods help while at the same time I felt hatred for the mixed up young man who had shot me. Isn’t that the meaning of the lost sheep? We are all Gods children and therefore equally beloved by him.”

“Ronald Reagan: The instinctual man” a review of The Reagan Diaries by Ronald Reagan, edited by Douglas Brinkley (HarperCollins, 2007), from The Economist, July 7th 2007, p. 81.
