President Bush is the first President that I can remember as a child. Though I didn’t know much of politics and the Presidency back then, I can recall thinking that the man on the TV seemed like a nice old man. Looking back now, I understand that he was more than that and his Presidency marks the end of an era.
We are a different country then we were back then. Now more than ever, we need great men and women to lead us.; not simply the powerful and influential, but genuinely great people. Those who are marked by kindness and civility, empathy and compassion, and wisdom and discernment.
I hope that we can get back there someday.
