Somewhere out in this audience may even be someone who will one day follow my footsteps, and preside over the White House as the president' s spouse. I wish him well!

In honor of Barbara Bush, I did research about this hero in “Biography Today.” I chose Barbara Bush because she was a first lady of the United States of America. After the research, I was glad I did because I learned so much about her.

Who knew such a normal beginning would give the world such a hero? Barbara was born on June 8, 1925 in Pierce of Rye, New York. Her proud parents were Pauline (Robinson) Pierce and Marvin Pierce.

The foundation of heroism is education. She went to school at public school for 6 years then went to private Country Day School for 4 grades then she went to an Ashley Hall to complete her secondary education then went to college at Smith College.

Hard work contributes to heroism. In Barbara Bush’s career highlights she was devoted much of her life to volunteer work.
