This story began making the rounds earlier today, and for good reason. President George H. W. Bush was photographed with a two-year old boy suffering with Leukemia. The boy—a son of one of Bush’s secret service men—had lost his hair during chemo treatments, so President Bush and the rest of his security detail shaved their heads as well. Brian Williams has the entire story below.
They say that integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching. Perhaps we might suggest a variation on this adage for politicians: Character is doing the right thing when you’re not running for office. President Bush is a fundamentally decent man, and we witnessed this rarity today in a single photograph.
