“The ‘American Dream’ means giving it your all, trying your hardest, accomplishing something. And then I’d add to that, giving something back. No definition of a successful life can do anything but include serving others.” – President George H.W. Bush (1924-2018)
To Do Today: “Be bold in your caring, be bold in your dreaming, and above all else, always do your best.” – President George H.W. Bush (1924-2018)
A Statesman Remembered

Tributes poured in Saturday following the death of George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st president of the United States who died in Houston late Friday after decades as a public servant that propelled an enduring family legacy. He was 94.
“The legacy of George H.W. Bush will be forever etched in the history of America and the world. It is a lifelong record of selfless patriotic service to our nation,” Former Secretary of State James Baker said in a statement.
“He was the youngest Navy pilot in World War II, a Texas congressman, UN ambassador, America’s first envoy to China, CIA director, vice president and president,” he said. “In each and every one of these positions, he led with strength, integrity, compassion and humility — characteristics that define a truly great man and effective leader.”
