On Saturday, April 11, 1981, President President Ronald Reagan
returned to the
White House after being released from the hospital where he was recovering from
an assassination attempt on March 30. He was the first serving U.S. President to
survive being shot in an assassination attempt. Reagan stated that he felt “God
had spared his life so that he might go on to fulfill a greater purpose”.

President Reagan returned to the Oval Office on Saturday,  April 25, receiving a
standing
ovation from his staff and Cabinet members. He was quoted as saying, 
“I should be applauding you”, referring to the teamwork they displayed during his 
absence.
