File:43 George H.W. Bush 3x4.jpg

Pol Light Moment #16 is when George H.W. Bush turned 88 years of age on June 12, 2012. George H.W. Bush was the 41st President of the United States, serving from 1989-1993. He also served as the Vice-President of the United States from 1981-1989.

George H.W. Bush suffers from Parkinson's Disease and is no longer able to walk unassisted. Here is the interview that George H.W. Bush had with his Granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager for the occasion of his 88th birthday on June 12, 2012.  In the interview the elder President reflects on his life and eventual death with wit and wisdom. There is a discussion about the bright socks he now dons in public and his joy in recently having a Great-Granddaughter. George H.W. Bush also reads one of his trademark letters to his family at the end that lead the former President to tears.

Pol Light does not endorse political candidates. We present a brighter side to politics when they are found on either side of the aisle. We don't have to agree with all of a person's politics to recognize these bright moments.
