Statement by Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Passing of President George H.W. Bush


Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened by the death of former President George H.W. Bush. His administration was marked by grace, civility, and social conscience. Through his Points of Light initiative and other projects, he espoused a uniquely American volunteer spirit, fostering bipartisan support for citizen service and inspiring millions to embrace community volunteerism as a cherished responsibility.  We again extend our heartfelt condolences to the Bush family.
