President George HW Bush

george-hw-bush-rememberedI am saddened to learn that President George HW Bush has died. He served his country well in war and peace, as a fighting man and as a public servant and as its chief executive. He was a one term president, as the Globe and Mail says, his “presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office,” but I think that history will be kind to him, especially when it compares the man with many who came before and after him.

Requiescat in pace, sir, your long tour of duties, all well done, is ended.
