A breaking news story is making headlines around the world. Former President George H.W. Bush has passed away at the age of 94.
"George Bush, the 41st president of the United States and the father of the 43rd, who steered the nation through a tumultuous period in world affairs but was denied a second term after support for his presidency collapsed under the weight of an economic downturn and his seeming inattention to domestic affairs, died Friday night at his home in Houston. He was 94," reported the New York Times.
President Bush has died just months after his wife, Barbara Bush, left this world. Our deepest prayers go out to his family during this time. We ask for God's comfort and grace to surround them in the coming days.
President Bush had been in and out of the hospital in the past several months. He had numerous health issues in his old age but never let his fighting spirit leave his heart. He always put on a brave smile and was an inspiration to all.
"In April, a day after attending Mrs. Bush’s funeral, he was treated for an infection that had spread to his blood. In 2013, he was in dire enough shape with bronchitis that former President George W. Bush, his son, solicited ideas for a eulogy. But he proved resilient each time. In 2013 he told well-wishers, through an aide, to 'put the harps back in the closet,'" according to the NYT.
Social media was filled with touching tributes honoring the late President. His achievements and his patriotism will be remembered for generations to come.
