My daughter and son-in-law gave me this great book for Christmas. Many gems in this book completely unrelated to the politics of the Bush presidencies. I was struck (again) by the importance placed on letter writing and journals. The 90 year old Bush's memory is fading but his letter writing and daily journal entries saved the day and allowed Bush 43 to write a real nice story about his Dad. #43 says - "His lifelong collection of letters and diaries proved an invaluable resource."
I implore everyone reading this blog to write letters and keep a diary - if not for yourself - then for your progeny.
