A Better Region 8: Remembering President George H. W. Bush

A Better Region 8: Remembering President George H. W. Bush - 12-3-18

(KAIT) - Tributes have been pouring in from around the world on the passing of our 41st President George Herbert Walker Bush.

He was the last president from what is considered our greatest generation.

He was a World War II veteran. In fact, he was the last veteran to occupy the White House.

We have a lot to learn from President Bush’s humility and honor to country.

Those attributes are no more evident than in the letter the one-term president wrote to incoming President Bill Clinton.

Bush could have been bitter about his defeat, but he wasn’t.

In part, he wrote: “I’m not a very good one to give advice but just don’t let the critics discourage you or push you off course. You will be our president when you read this note. I wish you well. I wish your family well. Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you. Good luck - signed George.”

There’s not much more to add to that note other than rest in peace fellow American and President George H.W. Bush.
