George H.W. Bush has made history today.
The former president may have not made a major advancement in creating a peaceful relationship with our greatest enemy, but he did do something special. President Bush turned 94-years-old. The first president to reach that age.
As reported by abcnews.go.com
George H.W. Bush enjoyed a relaxing birthday on Tuesday as he became the first former U.S. president to turn 94.
The nation's 41st president was receiving calls and taking it easy at his seaside home eight days after being released from a hospital where he was treated for low blood pressure, said Chief of Staff Jean Becker.
Several of his children were in town, including former President George W. Bush. Another son, Neil Bush, called on people in a newspaper opinion piece to volunteer and "to become a point of light."
As president, Bush encouraged others to be "points of light," reflecting his belief that people need to help out in their communities.
Bush became the oldest U.S. president months ago and is the first to celebrate a 94th birthday, said spokesman Jim McGrath.
Former Democratic President Jimmy Carter isn't far behind, at age 93, and he'll celebrate his 94th on Oct. 1. Two other former U.S. presidents made it to 93: deceased Republicans Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford.
President Bush has had an amazing life, and has been a part of some major events in history. For his birthday, the CIA released declassified documents from his stent as CIA director. Bush served as Vice President under President Reagan before becoming president himself. Then he got to watch as his son also became president of the United States.
