I had the honor to meet many first ladies around the world as the international chairman of Friends for Good Health delivering prevent care to international communities and my many meetings at the UN as a special advisor to Granada Mission. When I received the sad news of the passing of our former First Lady Barbara Bush, the wife of the 41st U.S. President and the mother of the 43rd, president instantly I remembered the first time I had privilege to meet her with the president.
My first thought of her gracious greetings of a stranger with a warm welcome on a young new immigrant was beyond my expectations. Just her presence humbled him to become a better human being. Looking back at that first of many meetings with the Bush family confirmed in my mind her legacy is one of patience, humility and love. She was a native New Yorker, a daughter, wife, a mother, grandmother, first lady and above all a great American and patriot.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Bush family during this difficult time. This great Lady will be sorely missed by all those who knew her and those who admired her from afar. We are truly fortunate to have had her grace our lives.
She was the epitome of intelligence and class. Her death is devastating not only to her family and close friends but also to those she inspired throughout her lifetime. I join with the world to pray for her and the Bush family for losing a jewel of humanity. May She Rest In Peace.

There should be no controversy when it comes to the flag of America. Every nation gets recognized by flying their flags to show their pride. The same way we do if not more when we landed on the moon we put our flag there. When we go to any event the symbol of our country is always present.
As our American flag represents our constitution for freedom of speech we have equal reasonability in our schools and society to educate our students the respect towards our flag and to those who sacrificed their lives for everyone’s freedom that we enjoy today as a great nation. Shame on those who disrespect our flag and more shame on those who don’t take pride and love in our nation by not flying the flag as a symbol of pride on their buildings.
Hampshire College President Jonathan Lash said the flag will not fly so the diverse campus can have a discussion about its many possible meanings. I think Mr. Lash should be ashamed by not flying the flag already failed the diverse discussion. God Bless America and Americans the greatest and generous nation on earth.
Today I am so proud of President elect Donald Trump for keeping his campaign promises by visiting Carrier Air Conditioners Company in Indiana. By visiting the company and meeting those hard working employees showing them how serious Mr. Trump is to his commitment to keep and make America great. He just showed how his business skills enabled him to communicate with other business leaders to keep the jobs from leaving the U.S. As usual liberals like Bernie Sanders think
“Trump has endangered the jobs of workers who were previously safe in the United States. Why? Because he has signaled to every corporation in America that they can threaten to offshore jobs in exchange for business-friendly tax benefits and incentives. Even corporations that weren’t thinking of offshoring jobs will most probably be re-evaluating their stance this morning. And who would pay for the high cost for tax cuts that go to the richest businessmen in America? The working class of America.”
Mr. Sanders skills are how to criticize others achievement with no solutions. Mr. Sanders knows how to say how to play with peoples minds by offering everything and give nothing. Its just like you cant give anything from an empty box. Mr. Sanders never communicated with any business leaders and knows little about anything else other a senator. Even at that he is not a good senator. So lets stand with President elect Trump and Vice President elect Pence for the success of their leadership for a better America. As I agree with President Obama and Hilary Clinton election is over now we have a new team elected, we all stand with them and we want them to succeed as our tradition of democracy is. Lets all join together in the spirit of the holidays in the hope of the best for all America and Americans. God Bless the USA the greatest in the world. Peace for all.
