Emotional Weather In USA As George H.W. Bush Is Laid To Rest…Several hundred people gathered in downtown Houston for a memorial to former President George H.W. Bush, a beloved figure in his adopted hometown..
George W. Bush became emotional during a memorial ceremony service, in honour of his late father George H.W. Bush.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in the tribute: ‘He kept us flying high, and challenged us to fly high higher still.
‘He did it with modesty and kindness that would have been surprising in someone one tenth as tough and accomplished as he was.
‘We stand with you in mourning, but also in gratitude. Gratitude for lives well lived, and duties thoroughly fulfilled. Gratitude that God gave this country, George and Barbara Bush. They may now be reunited in the light of His grace.’
Several hundred people gathered in downtown Houston for a memorial to former President George H.W. Bush, a beloved figure in his adopted hometown.
The Monday night memorial service, took place in front of Houston’s City Hall, bathed in lights of red, white, and blue.
Moreover, thousands of American citizens were pictured as they held up their phones while Hallelujah played by Clay Walker.
In addition, city organizers encouraged Houston residents to wear their boldest socks in a nod to Bush’s well-known sartorial tradition.
Michael Meaux (moh), who worked in the U.S. State Department for Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush, wore a pair of hot-pink socks that he laughingly said he had owned for a long time but had never worn before.
The Houston resident called Bush ‘the last gentleman president that we’ve had.’
On Monday, the 41st president’s remains were taken on the presidential aircraft, known as Air Force One when the sitting president is on board, from Houston, to Washington where his funeral service will be held in the National Cathedral.
