Presidential Library

Tuesday, October 29, 2019
One of my goals is to visit all the presidential libraries of the presidents who have been president during my lifetime.  I found myself at College Station last weekend to visit a family friend who has been ill, so I left my house early so I could see Bush 41's library.  
 It was so interesting to see things like the motorcade, political adds, tv reels, and items that dated the time period.
 I also remember this dress worn at the Inaugration!
 There are quite a few personal items the family chose to share with the library, and it was so interested to see those moments frozen in time...or rather, behind glass.
 They have a piece of the Berlin Wall, and there was a section dedicated to desert storm.
It was so strange to walk into the rooms and see news reels rolling where the president announced different life changing events and to be able to remember that moment in time that I lived in real time once upon a memory.  I was in 5th or 6th grade during a lot of these events, but they have remained fresh in my memory.
