George W. Bush is calling for Americans to join together to face the "shared threat" of the coronavirus
Former President, George W. Bush is calling for Americans to join together to face the “shared threat” of the coronavirus.
“In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants. We are human beings, equally vulnerable and equally wonderful in the sight of God. We rise or fall together.”
Bush noted that he had seen America join to “embrace unavoidable new duties” after the 9/11 attacks, and sees that spirit still alive and well today.
“In the days to come, it will be especially important to care in practical ways for the elderly, the ill and the unemployed,” he said.
The former president made his plea for unity in a video released on the Twitter account of The George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.
