It’s been a sad week. While I don’t generally don’t agree with his politics, there was no doubt that President George H.W. Bush was, in the words of his successor, President Clinton, “an honorable, gracious and decent man who believed in the United States, our Constitution, our institutions and our shared future. And he believed in his duty to defend and strengthen them, in victory and defeat. He also had a natural humanity, always hoping with all his heart that others’ journeys would include some of the joy that his family, his service and his adventures gave him.”
In that spirit, let’s spread a little joy, shall we?
