George Bush showed wisdom and humility in serving the country so well

This piece is meant to convey genuine appreciation for a truly great American who embodied the best of what makes this country what it is.

George Herbert Walker Bush should be revered as a role model for a nation that benefited from his life in ways difficult to comprehend. The facts speak for themselves in terms of his service, incredible modesty, restrained leadership, concern for the well-being of others, commitment to the environment, respect for the Presidency, and willingness and wisdom to craft a post-Cold War order based on dignity even for our bitter adversaries.

Dismiss these words as nostalgic sentimentality if you choose, but we would be wise to reflect on what our 41st President’s life has to teach us.

Sincerely yours,

Gary Kent
