God, I give thanks for Barbara Bush,
who spoke her mind plainly,
who loved deeply and for all her years,
who claimed the power of women,
named with honestly
the dangers of generations of prejudice,
and chose literacy as the cause
in which she could make a difference.
As the book of her life closes,
may her words be read by the world. Amen.
Bias has to be taught. If you hear your parents downgrading women or people of different backgrounds, why, you are going to do that. Barbara Bush
