We at The Daily Eastern News want to remember the great things former President George H.W Bush did during his life due to his tragic passing on Nov. 30 at the age of 93.

Bush was born on June 12, 1924 in Milton Massachusetts.

According to Encyclopedia Britannica, he served as torpedo bomber pilot in World War II and then he went on to serve as vice president of the United States between 1981-1989 for former president Ronald Reagan and served as president 1989-1993.

He is remembered for many international events that shaped world politics and relations. Bush was president during the fall of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1991.

In 1990 he met with the Mikhail Gorbachev in Paris and signed a mutual nonaggression pact which was one of the defining factors that ended The Cold War.

He was involved in other international affairs such as the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, so he was heavily involved in foreign affairs.

Bush was the president that brought about the end of The Cold War.

The fall of the Soviet Bloc countries and the Soviet Union brought about the end of communism on a massive scale. And Bush was one of the many people that brought about this threat of mutually assured destruction.

The Bush family are heavily involved in politics and they are one of the most powerful families in the United States.

So, let them mourn in peace and do not pester them over their political involvement and the actions Bush took during his presidency.

Rest in peace former President Bush, you will be remembered as leader for the many things you have done for this country as a soldier and a federal politician.
