George H.W. Bush,41st US President, RIP

Yesterday, the news came out that George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st United States President had died(cause unknown by the public) at age 94.

Sir, you had given dignity and honor to the Office of the Presidency by doing your job as the  President of the People. You took a political job as a calling to serve the people and not use as a means to enrich yourself nor to pursue your personal interests. You were humble when told of your extensive and impressive public service credentials which everyone knows. One would never accuse you of being a braggart nor have an ego the size of the universe. And why should you? Your self-esteem and level of happiness/contentment was intact during your lifetime.

You can hold your head high as you travel up to the heavens to meet your wife Barbara who’s already waiting for you at the pearly gates “under a thousand  points of light” as you usually quote.

Rest in peace!

  1. Hi Josie, this is an amazing tribute to a great president. I was in 5th grade in tiny school called Elican School in Ghana during the time when president George H.W. Bush was in office. I remember my teacher mentioning not just what a great president he was but also that Mrs. Barbara Bush was a fantastic first lady. I understood why when I read his biography almost ten years later. I particularly liked the way he handled foreign affairs. Thank you for this beautiful post.
