Ambassador, CIA director and vice president.  He devoted his later years to encouraging others to volunteer in their communities. President Bush believed in the importance of being kind to others. In his inauguration speech he said that:  "We as a people have such a purpose today. It is to make kinder the face of the nation and gentler the face of the world."
