George has done so much to help make the place we call home, incredible which is why instead of treating his death as a tragedy, he needs to be remembered for what a great person he was and the mark he left on this country.

  • During his presidency, he handled foreign affairs
  • Bush was the first sitting vice president to be elected president since Martin van Buren in 1836.
