Twelve Presidents have served in my lifetime so far

Up until a few days ago, half of them were still alive. I am sad for the loss of another…

RIP George H.W. Bush – I have great respect for you.

This made me particularly introspective. I was saddened when I saw George W. Bush tearing up, it reminded me about my dad.

So, twelve Presidents have served during my life… (although the first two I don’t really remember) which is almost a quarter of ALL Presidents. Yikes!  Now only five are still alive.

One is younger than I am. (Boy, don’t I feel like a slacker…)
