KCT Thought of the Week, September 29, 2017

“The images of a long lifetime remain vivid for the nation’s oldest surviving president (George H. W. Bush), but he will not rank them.  They are a continuum, it seems, not a hierarchy. ‘At age 93 now, I have too many memories to separate just one or two out,’ Bush wrote in the e-mail.  ‘But let me say this.  It’s where my parents were married.  It’s where some of my grandchildren were married too.  So the town (Kennebunkport), and its people, are a part of my heartbeat.  It’s always been that way, and thus may it ever be.’”  Brian MacQuarrie in the Boston Globe, July 4, 2017
