I didn’t get to watch the funeral for George H.W. Bush, 41st President. (I was teaching a home schooling class on “Science and the Church.”) My wife did, however, and she made some insightful comments. Bush 41 was the last American president who was also a war hero. He exemplified a love of our country that is rare amongst current politicians, be they Republicans or Democrats. So, in a sense (and those attending seemed to show it also), this was a funeral not only for a former president, but for an America that was mortally wounded in the Viet-Nam War and was put into ICU by many of the actions of President Obama.
