Bush Library dedication was an uplifting event
I was not amused to see your cartoon in the Glenwood Post on April 27
regarding the George Bush Presidential Library.
It is obvious it is not understood that presidential libraries are built
with private funds and when completed turned over to the government.

I have just returned from having accepted the invitation from President and
Laura Bush to attend the dedication of the Presidential Library and Museum
on the campus at SMU at Dallas, Texas. It was an extraordinary affair
attended by about 10,000 invited guests including former staffers, foreign
ambassadors and leaders, senators and congressman, first responders and
state and local leaders.
Also with us were the adult children of presidents Johnson, Reagan, Ford and
Nixon, and five living presidents and their wives including President Obama.
It brought collective tears to most of us to see Barbara Bush help President
George H.W. Bush stand-up from his wheel chair to thank us all for coming to
this library for the public with his son¹s name on the building. President
Clinton in his usual good sense of humor made everyone laugh, and President
Carter acknowledged what an incredible impact President George W. Bush had
made in Africa with his AIDs project.
All of us were there in an upbeat spirit to hear President George W. Bush
acknowledge us for the achievements of the past six years in getting the
Bush Center up and running. His authenticity brought tears to our eyes again
as he thanked us all for our service to our fabulous country. Freedom and
faith in our future was the focus in much of his emotional acknowledgment.
Many of us returned to the Bush Center that evening with thousands of
families with children, as well as the students at SMU, at the Block Party
held in the soccer field. Later that evening President George W. Bush and
Laura joined us for the Lighting of Freedom Hall and the extraordinary
fireworks display, much of it in red, white and blue. It was a grand
celebration — the most enjoyable and uplifting event I have ever attended.
So sad for America
Whether pro- or con-abortion, anyone with conscience should be shocked that
all charges have been dropped against abortion Dr. Gosnell.
Babies born live (were killed), and one woman died. Body parts were found
all over the clinic. This is simply a horror story that will now be swept
under the rug again as Obama gives a speech to Planned Parenthood.
Please, folks, wake up. There is evil in America doing its dirty business
every day while innocents have to suffer the consequences.
Our administration is soft on terror: Obama¹s middle name might be a good
clue to that. How long are we going to put up with gutter morality and
values or a mainstream media that will not tell the truth? Isn¹t it time to
stand up and tell it like it is regarding our anything goes, socialist
government in Washington, D.C.?
Money elects representatives and presidents, we don¹t. It will get worse
when we have no defense against a monster government whose agenda is to make
us slaves and put one world government in place via the United Nations. This
is the hidden truth.
