Opinion: Remembering George H.W. Bush
On Friday, November 30, 2018 former President George H.W. Bush died peacefully surrounded by friends and family, he was 94.
Former President Bush was a decorated WWII Navy pilot and a former Director of the CIA. After serving as Vice President to former President Ronald Regan, Bush himself moved into the oval office toward the end of the Cold War. President Bush will be remembered for his extensive record of service to our country.
As President he displayed an incredible ability to make the United States safe through artful foreign policy. President Bush led America through an incredibly complicated time, including the falling of the Berlin Wall, the first Gulf War, and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The late President arrives in Washington D.C. this week where he will lie in state at the Capitol before being honored and receiving a state funeral at the National Cathedral.
President Bush will then be laid to rest at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library at Texas A&M University next to his wife, former First Lady Barbara Bush and their late daughter, Robin.
Our 41st President, George H.W. Bush was a man of honor, valor, and devotion to our great country.
Here’s the bottom line: From everyone here at the Bottom Line team, our thoughts and prayers are with the Bush family in this time of mourning. Former President Bush’s contributions to our nation’s history will never be forgotten. Rest in peace, sir.
