During his presidency, sweeping changes took place across the globe. The collapse of the Soviet Union, America’s archenemy for fifty years, heralded the spread of democracy and freedom in Eastern Europe. His excellent leadership provided stability during reunification of Germany, a country divided for fifty years during the Cold War. The success of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm confirmed President Bush as a sophisticated statesman, masterful diplomat, and a strong leader.
The large and close-knit family of George Bush will leave its mark on American History. Faith, family, friends and public service continue to be rock-solid values in his life. Inspiring others, President Bush lives his conviction that "any definition of a successful life must include service to others."
