I was still a Republican while George H. W. Bush was president of the United States of America.
The 41st president made it easy to be a Republican by signing into law bills protecting the environment, making the world more accessible to disabled Americans, and protecting voter rights. I would still be a Republican if the current White House occupant believed in science and listened to foreign policy experts.
I look forward to 30 days of remembering the life of George H.W. Bush. Perhaps it will give this nation a chance to examine itself and the next generation of candidates. It is possible we can find another candidate of hope if we create a political environment that supports hope. If we turn away from hate, hope will find us. We need to remember the lessons of George H. W. Bush.
