There are many who criticized Mrs. Laura Bush. She is too much like a Stepford wife. She does not speak out enough (or loud enough). She isn't stylish enough. Blah, blah, blah.
Personally, I think Mrs. Bush has "a lot of class," as they say.
The Catholic News Agency reports on her final school visit as First Lady...
Mrs. Laura Bush on Tuesday visited Little Flower School in Bethesda, Maryland in her last school visit as First Lady. Noting the upcoming celebration of National Catholic Schools Week, she praised the history of Catholic schools in the United States and congratulated Little Flower for being chosen as a Blue Ribbon School.
Her audience included school faculty, students, and the Archbishop of Washington Donald Wuerl.
“This is my last school visit as First Lady of the United States, and I wanted to end my school visit with a terrific school like Little Flower,” Mrs. Bush said during her 10 a.m. remarks, in which she also referenced her career as a teacher and school librarian.
The First Lady said that National Schools Week, observed from Jan. 25 – 31, is “the week that everybody in the United States can thank our Catholic schools for the great work that you do all over our country and all over the world, really.”
“It's also a time for us to talk to our leaders about the importance of Catholic education,” she continued.
Thank you Mrs. Bush. You will be missed by many of us.
