I visited the 9/11 memorial last year and was shocked that I had to PAY to get in and then HAD to walk through the gift shop to leave, I actually felt sick. People were murdered there, and now they’re selling fridge magnets.
Let that all sink in.

It’s the 90th Birthday of George Bush!

George Herbert Walker Bush was born on June 12, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts.

On his 18th birthday, Bush graduated from Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts with World War II raging on two fronts.  That same day, although he had been accepted at Yale University, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy as a seaman second class.  He received his wings on June 9, 1943, becoming the youngest pilot in the U.S. Navy at the time.

During World War II, Bush flew torpedo bombers, completing 58 missions. On a run over Chichi Jima in 1944, his plane was hit by anti-aircraft fire. Bush bailed out and was rescued by a Navy submarine.  

For his service during WWII, Bush was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and three Air Medals.

Watch this space for more on the life of George Bush throughout today.

Happy Birthday President Bush!

"I see the lives for which I lay down my life, peaceful, useful, prosperous and happy, in that England which I shall see no more. I see Her with a child upon her bosom, who bears my name. (…)
I see that I hold sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants, generations hence. I see her, an old woman, weeping for me on the anniversary of this day. I see her and her husband, their course done, lying side by side in their last earthly bed, and I know that each was not more honoured and held sacred in the other’s soul, than I was in the souls of both.
I see that child who lay upon her bosom and who bore my name, a man, winning his way up in that path of life which once was mine. I see him winning it so well, that my name is made illustrous there in the light of his. I see the blots I threw upon it, faded away. I see him, foremost of just judges and honoured men, bringing a boy of my name, with a forehead that I know and golden hair, to this place - then fair to look upon, with not a trace of this day’s disfigurement - and I hear him tell the child my story, with a tender and a faltering voice.
It is far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known."
