I just finished watching the funeral ceremony for George H. W. Bush. I heard “the end of an era” mentioned once or twice. With Brian Mulroney and Senator Alan Simpson speaking there had to be a flavor of, end of an era. They both knew and appreciated President Bush. It does seem like the end of an era as this great man was both President and Patriot. The youngest Navy pilot, enlisting in the Navy in World War II before attending college. He spent his entire life in service to his country along with being the president.
I would hope everyone in this country learns from President George H. W. Bush’s life of service. It was all based on and grew out of a life that was well lived, a life of faith and love for his fellow man.
Toward the end of the funeral ceremony, all the living presidents were sitting side-by-side in the front pew of the church, across from the Bush family members. The part of the service started where the Apostles Creed was recited. I noticed the current president’s lips were not moving.
