This following we lost our former president George Bush. He was 94 years old. Bush is remembered by his friends for being a good and honorable man. The 41st president’s body was carried on a train for a 70 mile trip. That included Magnolia, where hundreds of people gathered to see the train go by. Crowd members waved flags and cheered as the train arrived. George bush was the last president from the WWII generation. He had dedicated his life to serving his country. He was a WWII fighter pilot and was shot down. He had often asked himself why me? Why was I allowed to survive? I think we can agree that the life he lived after was an answer to that question. In this day and age it is hard to find decent candidates that can unify political parties. At the funeral it was encouraging to see all the living ex-presidents together regardless of political parties and views.
