George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States from 1989 to 1993, passed away November 30th, 2018 at the age 94. His passing was seven months after his wife’s, Barbara Bush, who was the United States Former First Lady. She died on April 17, 2018, in Houston, Texas. George Bush not only was our 41st President but he was also our 43rd Vice President 1989–1993 and a father to George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Pauline Robinson Bush, Dorothy Bush Koch, Neil Bush, and Marvin Bush. In George H.W. Bush’s honor, December 5 has been designated as a national day of mourning.

George H. W. Bush left behind a memorable legacy. He oversaw the end of the Soviet Union and the third German Unification, the Persian Gulf War, and touched upon more domestic issues, for example, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). While signing this act in July 1990, he stated:  “Every man, woman, and child with a disability can now pass through once-closed doors into a bright new era of equality, independence, and freedom.” This act changed how people treated those with disabilities by prohibiting the discrimination.

President's George H. W. Bush's legacy will continue to live on.
