President George Herbert Walker Bush 1924-2018

A different view of this scout, shot from behind with a full view of the coffin in background, was the home page of the Washington Post yesterday.  I couldn't isolate the picture to post; I was sure you would be able to get a version for the forum.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. 

U.S. Rep. Jim Langevin of Rhode Island says he credits his current position in the House to former President George H.W. Bush's signing the Americans with Disabilities Act.

At the age of 16, Langevin was injured while working with the Warwick Police Department in the Boy Scout Explorer program.

A gun accidentally discharged and a bullet struck Langevin, leaving him paralyzed. The Democratic congressman went on to become the first quadriplegic to serve in the House of Representatives.

Bush signed the ADA, which is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability, into law in 1990.
