"A former first lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018, at the age of 92," reads a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush.


She was in declining health. RIP.


During her tenure as the nation's first lady, Mrs. Bush, the mother of six children, was a champion for global literacy and continued the work after she and her husband left the White House.



"Literacy fits in with so many other things," she once told The Chicago Tribune. "If more people could read, fewer people would have AIDS. There would be less homelessness. I'm absolutely convinced of that."


Yea.....it's a 2nd thread.....

Mrs. Bush wasn't elected as a leader. Didn't conduct war or administer policy.

Save it for the Mr(s). You'll get your chance.

(For continuity)

I never saw the "if more people could read, less people would have the AIDS or be homeless" quote until now.

Wow. Just wow.

Well, no matter what you think of her she's one of the most important women in American history. I was kind of indifferent to GHWB's presidency and wasn't a fan (at all) of GWB but credit where it is due. I love strong women and she did everything her own way.

I always liked Barbara. I didn't know she was in failing health until the announcement earlier today that she was switching to palliative care. Has anyone said what her health problem was?

Motorcycle accident.




Other than pneumonia a few years ago, nothing publicly mentioned aside from being 92.

A model First Lady, upstanding citizen and a role model.

The complete opposite of H and the one with the adams apple that hates America.
