Jacquel Rassenworth on Barbara Bush

Well, I usually don’t like doing things like this, but I have no choice.

Last night, I had fallen asleep (because I had spent Monday recovering from Coachella) and when I woke up, I found out on Twitter that former First Lady Barbara Bush had recently died.

This makes me sad.

As we all know, Barbara Bush was the wife of George H. W. Bush and the mother of George W. Bush, both of whom became president of the United States during the years 1989-2009. (Excluding 1993-2001, when Bill Clinton was president.) But I know she did more than that, especially as far as her literacy campaign was concerned.

I feel that I must say a prayer for the Bush family in their time of grief, and you should say a prayer too.
