George W. Bush: "I Came Home To Texas With My Values Intact."

Former U.S. President George W. Bush spoke publicly at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas on November 12. This was a special event, attended by more than 1,000 people, to launch the George W. Bush Presidential Center.

"Mr. Bush said there were ups and downs, but through it all he 'always did what I believed was in the best interests of our country.'"

"And, he told the crowd to raucous applause, 'I came home to Texas with my values intact.'"

"There are three components to the center, he said: An archive, museum, and the policy institute."

The archive will include the documents and records of Mr. Bush's time in office, and will house 'four million photos; thousands of boxes of documents; and hundreds of millions of e-mails,' according to the former president, who said he is using the materials to be housed there for his forthcoming memoir."

"The policy institute, which will be called the George W. Bush Institute, will be 'a vibrant hub of principled thought and practical action,' the former president said."

"He said the institute will follow his principles, which include the idea that 'free markets open the path to opportunity, that a successful society requires personal responsibility, that freedom is universal and transformative, and that every human life has dignity and value.'"

From: George W. Bush: I Kept my Values

Author's Note: I still appreciate former President George W. Bush's honesty, integrity, and values. I hate to think what might have happened to the United States of America if someone else had been the U.S. President on 9/11.

I don't dare even think about it, because I know that no one could have ever done as good a job during that extreme crisis situation, and in the days to follow. Thank you, Mr. President.
