    So great for W. Bush to lighten the mood at the beginning of the speech, and so heartbreaking to see him get sad at the end

    +Ken li Ok first of all Bush was notified about 9/11 before it happened and did nothing about it but he did not deliberately do it. He was notified that Osama Bin Laden was going to launch an attack but did nothing.

    RockAllStarsCollaborationProject D He hasn’t done anything horrible. Most the people who bash him are blindly following someone else’s opinions instead of creating one of their own.

    Little do most of the commentors know, theres a whole conspiracy set up here. This Q shits real. Not sayin Trumps a hero, but for now ill give him this.

    It is so surreal to see George W. Bush crying. In fact I don't think I have ever witnessed a president (in office or not) break down like that.

    It’s crazy to see so many influential people in a single room.

    Brer Rabbit Also your profile picture and name is pretty cringeworthy.

    It's nice to see both parties being tolerant to each other for the death of a great president

    All the political debate, but humanity is united by our own fragility and the inevitable unknown that we all will face. Enemies sit alongside as peers, and pay respect to the peer most senior to them.

    0:33 love the way Hillary avoids eye contact with Donald. If given the chance, I am sure that she would want to get into a palm fight with him.

    He gave her a piece of candy once at an event a little while ago, now he does it everytime he sees her at events.

    sarto2010 that isnt "classy" its childish. She should get over herself and act like an adult.

    At 01:20 I noticed Bush pass Michelle Obama something as they shook hands, with abit of a giggle between the two. Did you all notice that?

    My Grandpa was a Navy Corpsman 2nd. class that was stationed aboard the USS Finback that rescued Lt ( jg ) George Bush when he was in his liferaft. My Grandpa gave Mr. Bush a brief medical exam, and looked after him until they returned to Pearl Harbor. Many years later, my Grandpa remembered how personable and grateful that Lt. ( j.g. ) Bush was towards him. Sadly, another member of the "Greatest Generation" has gone on before us. Rest peacefully, Mr. President. Your admirable service to this...
