17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
George H.W. Bush

I happened to be in Washington DC while the funeral of president George H.W. Bush was taking place. Here the hurst of George H. W. Bush passes in front of the World War 2 memorial. President Bush was a World War 2 veteran so this moment was a special one, you could feel the admiration and respect from every person there as the procession passed slowly by. It was a surreal moment of happenstance, and a beautiful way to celebrate an amazing life. An entire city shut down to celebrate his life.
