A few months after Hurricane Ike closed millions of dollars in damage along the Texas coast.
A beautiful spring day gave a group of volunteers the opportunity to clean up their severely eroded beach.
It was also an opportunity for -- Americans continuing mission he began decades of.
-- and have a great believer in this concept of a thousand points alive and volunteering.
I've always said there can be no definition of success of -- they do not include service to others that that this.
He's been called the most experienced man to be president since the founding father.
And his resume of service to America and the world is extensive indeed welcome to our special program I'm Brit -- George H.
Bush grew up with a sense of loyalty and duty part of his legacy is the example he set in life.
And a movement in which volunteers become quote points of light by helping people in -- government doesn't.
But for a world long on aids with fear of war between the superpowers managing the peaceful end of the Cold War.
Maybe his most notable achievement and now president George H.
Bush the man and his mission.
I don't think you'll ever find them more thoughtful.
Considerate person that George Bush.
President Bush he's probably the most complete person I've ever meant.
If you look at his.
He was a member of congress.
He is Smart he's humble.
He was chairman of the party he -- and -- here to see you man Yi is funny.
He is spontaneous.
He was second represented just trying to go forward and rumors and he came back and -- direct.
For central intelligence.
When we first started the campaign for president making him.
George had his speech.
And promises and a reward.
He would go -- he said my father inculcated.
In me a sense of public service -- -- -- -- Don't -- in culture.
People don't understand what's that mean he hit every voter in yet again.
As vice president for eight years and -- as president of the United States George Bush's mission was to make sure everyone got it.
Hi friends we have work to do.
There -- the homeless.
Lost in roaming.
Today more than ever we need community service and help everywhere as a gift and it.
-- this is a special panel.
This is the genius -- an.
George Bush is always live life in the fold with the restless energy that late in life came to contain a message for others.
I like -- and I like the thrill of it but I think it sets an example for older people.
Here and abroad that you know because you're eighty years old that doesn't -- you're out of it out of the game.
The landing site for some of Bush's jumps as the grounds of the bush presidential library and museum and the bush school of government and public service.
Both located on the campus of Texas a and M university in College Station.
Here -- bush library we follow and the like from time to George Bush we have all of his presidential and vice presidential records.
Post a 100000 artifacts about a million photographs.
Opening day was fantastic.
We had the living presence here first ladies and President Bush get a great speech said that.
I don't know if Lou Gehrig.
My great idol said it first.
But I do know that he said it best.
Today I feel like the -- person in the world.
While he served his country in a number of ways it wasn't until his acceptance speech at the 1988 GOP convention.
The George Bush became fully to define himself in political terms.
I will keep America moving forward.
Always forward for a better America.
-- an endless enduring dream and a thousand points of life.
This is my mission.
And I will come played it.
That night George Bush -- Americans to step up and help their neighbors in a way government -- And a phrase points of light -- the public discourse.
More than twenty years later thousands of people gathered in New Orleans for the national conference on volunteering and service.
And Neil Bush continued to promote his father's mission.
Do you believe that by telling our stories of success.
We can inspire and mobilize others to make a difference -- there -- while the focus of the conference was on ways to get people involved in service.
It also gave volunteers a chance to help their host city.
I think -- building.
There forests of polls right now but they're gonna turn into a giant playground and our hope is that by revitalizing this -- and 25 parks like it in New Orleans through volunteer efforts.
That it becomes a real jewel in this neighborhood and I think my father's kind of taught us that.
You don't really blasts were blessed and so many ways in the least we can do is the kitchen and help out and help that the -- Among us.
It comes from his own upbringing -- George.
Herbert walker bush was born on June 12 1924.
He grew up in Greenwich Connecticut -- his three Brothers and one sister.
Summers were spent at their grandparents' house in Kennebunkport Maine a home bush would eventually inherit.
His father Prescott Bush set a mark for achievement and duty.
Successful in business Prescott Bush volunteered in local government help to establish a USO and served in the United States senate for two terms.
His father is kind of a stern statue -- a pretty rigid.
Does this guy but his mother was kind of the moral compass.
And write about my.
Grandmother and my -- Dorothy walker which I think was one of the greatest influences my life.
-- bush cook is the author of a memoir of her father's life.
It was my grandmother and time and again -- -- lessons in -- and very basic lessons can be kind to others.
Lift someone happening again.
-- -- don't brag about yourself.
High school for bush was at one of the oldest schools in America Phillips academy in Andover.
The school motto known -- means not for self.
I felt that on my life don't brag about yourself.
I called her wants and minus sixty.
Moments scored three goals in soccer.
Long pause out of the team do and you know.
That stayed with me all my life.
Making a difference in encouraging others to become points of light became a mission in George Bush's life.
But first his attention was drawn to a young woman named Barbara Pierce.
Then came a world war.
Now my cap -- planes together with a five hour.
Seventeen year old George Bush was on his high school campus when he heard the stunning news of the it.
-- bombed Pearl Harbor volunteered on June 12.
42 that was my eighteenth birthday attack Clinton as a Seaman second class and then less than a year later got my wings and commission.
That made bush the youngest naval aviator of the time.
He's fluid TVM avenger torpedo bomber which he nicknamed after his high school sweetheart Barbara Pierce -- -- admitted -- dance shortly after the Pearl Harbor attack on one of his.
Bombing runs he and his crew came under intense antiaircraft fire.
I'll never forget it September 2 1944.
We were making it.
Final strike on the phone and -- the -- was Chichi -- I felt dish.
-- -- I can see the fire overran an aircraft.
And then suddenly my plane was on fire.
With his plane burning the young talent continued his -- completing his mission before instructing his crew to bail out then escaping himself.
But the street George Bush was awarded the distinguished flying cross.
So I'm floating around in his draft.
Paddling and then all of a sudden saw this submarine surface.
And they -- been watching me through the periscope.
And -- -- picked me up.
Bush lost his crew.
He wrote a letter to his parents on the submarine about his ordeal in battle expressing the pain he felt for his dead comrades.
Last night I rolled in tallest.
I kept reliving the whole experience.
-- heart aches for the families of those two boys with.
When discharged lieutenant junior grade George Herbert Walker Bush had flown 58 combat missions and was a decorated aviator.
War he and Barbara got married and it was off to Yale University.
In addition to doing well in the classroom he stood out on the baseball diamond playing into College Baseball World Series.
As captain in his senior year he met the legendary Babe Ruth.
Remarkably he still had time to volunteer.
Even while a student at Yale team was very active and all kinds of campus service activities including.
Leading a drive to raise funds for the united negro college.
Bush graduated with honors -- just two and a half years earning -- BA degree in economics and he and Barbara now proud parents of their first child George W.
Set out to Texas who's going to try his hand in the oil exploration news.
He went today after he graduated from college broke down a little bit -- -- they suffered job.
He needed to -- they had a wife and -- the.
By 1949 they had a second -- -- it and we're living in Midland Texas.
-- the -- began making a life for themselves bush became an entrepreneur starting his own oil company.
They immerse themselves in their community always finding some time to give back.
He was involved in creating Little League teams and additional activities that benefited the city.
The region almost -- into -- -- To give.
The values that led him as a young businessman and woodland Texas to help found the first YMCA in 1952.
It's not something he did for political game.
In 1953 their third child John Ellis was born -- it was also the same -- three year old Robin was diagnosed with leukemia.
And incurable disease at that time.
She died on October 11 1953.
-- the bushes donated her body to science to help other children and didn't stop there.
George Bush was appoint a life long before of that phrase existed after their daughter Robin passed away from leukemia -- start of the bright star foundation to help.
With cancer research that was just part of the culture of our family.
To help others in in little ways and in their cases in very big ways.
Neil Mallon bush arrived in 1955.
His brother Marvin followed the next year and daughter -- completed to bush clan in 1959.
The birth of toros seemed to fill the void left by the death of his first little girl pushed for -- -- -- a letter to his mother about the need for another -- We need someone who's afraid of -- We need someone to cry when I get -- not argue.
We need a little one who can kiss without leaving a -- jam or -- We need a girl.
In 1959 George Bush relocated his film in Houston Texas where he co founded Zapata offshore.
He was a success in the oil business but soon his ambition turn to politics.
He ran for Harris County Republican Party chairman in 1962.
And one -- career in politics had begun.
He lost his senate bid to incumbent Democrat Ralph Yarborough in 1964.
To two years later he made a run for congress.
The became the first Republican representative for Houston.
The most controversial vote that congressman bush had to make was in 1968 on and open housing.
Bill he could not imagine as a member of congress telling -- returning servicemen and that they would not be able to get.
Public housing because of their skin color.
He went back to Texas.
People -- I'm ready for his threats.
He went out to a town -- me.
Jim Baker told me George Bush was going in to.
Tell the crowd that he was going for open house.
-- said it all the way.
Through that -- -- thought we were going to be killed by the end of the evening he would turn the crowd.
As busy as congress and bush was he still -- turn to volunteer in his home community would he would come home to Houston from.
The congress he'd be engaged -- softball support for an inner city softball team that has to you my mother constantly gave back.
My father said that at every definition of a successful life must include service to others and that's right.
Just ahead how George Bush created one of the longest -- -- -- in public service.
As he prepared himself for the presidency.
And how his own words and a campaign speech would come back to haunt him in his bid for a second term.
Read my lips.
And many times and his political career people.
Looked upon -- practices two friendly too eager but that is the way he is it's.
Natural interest and other people.
In 1970 George Bush's career has changed -- second unsuccessful senate race.
That's when President Nixon appointed bush ambassador to the United Nations.
He used to have a practice.
-- of just walking down the halls and dropping in on his -- and bashers say how are things in your country what's going on there.
That allowed bush to display his style of personal diplomacy.
The head of the Watergate scandal ambassador bush returned to Washington.
Become chairman of the Republican national committee's.
He eventually -- Richard Nixon to resign the presidency for the good of the party.
My fellow Americans.
Our long national.
Is over Gerald Ford ask bush.
What he wanted to do and suggested ambassadorships.
-- -- specifically.
Time plums of London Paris but bush turned down -- token of appreciation.
Really wanted to China.
Ride his bicycle and to Tiananmen square off and visit neighborhoods and he was just so friendly and outgoing that I think he was kind of a surprising.
Emissaries to the Chinese bush was.
Actually creating -- ground work for future strong US relationship with China he loved the job with China.
But when they called him back to take over the CIA which was imploded that.
In 1975 the -- church committee was investigating abuses by CIA operatives abroad.
A lot of people think he was.
Signaling his own political death -- to go to the CIA it's such a troubled time.
That was a natural fit for George Bush to come and and to say if there were abuses were gonna clean it up.
When Jimmy Carter was elected president Edmund bush would be out as head of the CIA.
He would now set his sights on his own run for the White House.
George virtually nothing merit -- -- polls right -- had a chance everybody said John Connolly was central casting idea -- But -- fizzled out early bush and Reagan -- now rivals bush and Reagan slugged it out from state to state.
Eventually of course Reagan won more primaries got the nomination as a man who finished second bush seemed in line for the second -- on the ticket but it seemed for a time it might not happen.
Everything in the press this thing Ford is going to be -- He called me up and said George I want -- there.
-- my vice president actually answered the phone and so there was a little tentativeness -- the beginning on the part governor Reagan days were initially very.
Cool and distant even suspicious of him.
Great breakthrough in their -- him I think was on the day the President Reagan was shot.
-- wouldn't land the helicopter as he was coming back from.
Texas on the South Lawn of the White House because as he put it only the president lands on the South Lawn George Bush would not advance himself had.
The expanse of the -- to President George Bush was as loyal.
And -- sensitive to President Reagan as you can possibly be -- when George Bush was vice president he did for.
Most of the protocol that he would go to Q you've got to know the world leaders in about it before he became press.
It was at the funeral of Soviet leader Chernenko in 1985 that bush first met Mikhail Gorbachev.
That set the table saying this man is very different than any of it.
That that down and proved to be correct when bush decided run for president -- used television advertising to sharpen his image.
I was responsible for.
For doing the -- hit a great sense of humor he'd say how are you gonna help me be president of sales have already sized person I should have if you wanna be president.
Living in Ronald Reagan's shadow -- eight years had its drawbacks.
For somebody Newsweek to come out and say he was of it was devastating to him but he said you know.
The men in the Pacific that I fought with -- didn't believe that and I don't think -- where people.
A lot of great stories and politics about the underdog winning and this is going to be one of them.
The 1988 Republican National Convention George Bush did something he was unaccustomed to doing.
He talked about himself.
For seven and a half years I've helped the president.
Conduct the most difficult job on earth.
There is very important that he hit a home run speech and he did had a.
But another part of his speech would come back to haunt him in four years as a broken campaign funds that congress will force me and not say.
Read my lips.
The 88 campaign against Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis was a tough battle for bush.
vice president Jimmy Carter has called this the worst campaign ever George Bush supported cutbacks in American education.
-- revolving -- present policy gave weekend programs for first degree murder is not eligible for parole.
America can't afford that risk distorting my record is full of lies and he knows it.
Whoever started down this road first it negative campaigning.
The American people from all reports coming to us.
Completely fed up.
America can't afford that risk interns and negative campaigning.
You know I don't sound like a kid in the schoolyard he started.
George Bush would go on to defeat Michael Dukakis in a landslide by about seven million votes that -- have spoken.
Still to come how President Bush used his personal diplomatic experience.
To deal with the old enemies and new threats.
Welcome back to our special program I'm Brit Hume.
On President Bush's watch the United States -- dramatic challenges worldwide.
The protests in Tiananmen square.
Saddam Hussein in the first gulf war.
Mikhail Gorbachev and the collapse of the Soviet Union.
And many give credit to president George H.
Bush that that Cold War ended with a whimper not a bank.
I -- George Herbert Walker Bush but this is a time limit future seems -- door you can walk right through.
Into Iran call tomorrow.
Great nations of the world are moving towards democracy.
Through the door to freedom.
On the other side of the global crisis was erupting.
Unarmed pro democracy demonstrators in China's Tiananmen square clash with the government troops and tanks.
President Bush -- know a lot of the leaders from his personal experiences in China and and what he got a lot of criticism for not acting as Christmas and forcefully.
Into measured steps that would not close the door.
Mostly by cutting off ties that we had to change doctor -- -- military.
Were the ones who had been.
Q where he tried to call me -- shopping.
Then the Chinese that we don't division so tough the president -- -- quiet.
To talk about -- Tried to restore.
Or keep some kind of thread of continuity here shall -- and destroyed a very important relationship.
And it worked.
By November of 1989 protesters and east Germany were demanding freedom to cross over into the west.
Then the unthinkable happen.
After the Berlin Wall -- -- -- For us to show more emotion more exuberant.
We could have been the stupidest thing at present we could do we didn't know how the Soviet military is gonna react.
We did they were in their barracks that we didn't know whether they were again this say to Gorbachev enough we're not going to be kicked around like this -- -- -- a crazy idea.
The American has diabetes tests and come over here.
Just a few weeks after the fall of the Berlin Wall bush had his first official summit -- Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
During the meeting at sea off Malta President Bush expressed his support -- orbit trust purest -- or restructuring initiative.
And other reforms in the Communist bloc.
I want to do it on a ship I think back to the days that Roosevelt did that kind of thing and we plan to go over to their crews are never gonna come back -- -- Andrea have exchanged business for the receiver so rough.
Gorbachev wouldn't come out to our -- No agreements were signed but bush and Gorbachev struck a cooperative tone that would lead some to believe this seaborne summit defined the end of the Cold War.
Following his Russian summit bush was on the verge of another foreign policy challenge the removal of Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega.
There was an -- action in Panama and he stole the election.
Interestingly enough President Carter was down there -- supervises elections and said you know it was -- like.
We decided it had to get rid.
And we did useful but that time that happened the president had called all of the leaders.
Latin America with the first Hilton head.
His foreign policy team repeatedly faced explosive situations around the world.
The president needed to divide his attention.
To in the momentous -- abroad and pressing domestic issues at home.
Also during his presidency bush nominated judges David Souter and Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court.
And he -- on the Americans with disabilities act -- the law.
DA DA insurers and employers covered by the act.
Against qualified individuals with disabilities.
George Bush firmly believe in hand -- notes to build bonds of trust.
And it's very easy then to get on the phone and talk to someone.
President Bush the former UN ambassador and emissary to China would routinely call his foreign counterparts.
You say well why -- -- called to present.
And the reaction very -- and made my job infinitely easier.
President -- of France who was known to be a very stoic.
Very formal individual and the Reagan administration have had a hard time.
A thaw in relations with France but President Bush reached out to -- invited.
The president of France to his home in Kennebunkport.
No neckties -- very low key very informal and it helped the United States improved dramatically its relationship with France.
Bush invited other foreign leaders to his home in Maine it was an example of Bush's style of personal diplomacy and the real test of his diplomacy came and Iraq's Saddam Hussein invaded neighboring Kuwait.
War and Saddam first attacked Kuwait.
His approach was to coordinate -- go to the UN and to talk to friends and allies about an international.
Coordination to deal with it.
And so when some tough though it's need to be taken down the road -- -- related desert storm that particular the president United States it.
Touched base with the president for is once again.
Americans have stepped forward to -- tearful goodbye with their families.
Before leaving for a strange and distant shores.
At this very moment.
They served together.
In defensive principles.
And the dream of a new world order -- bush has drawn a clear line in the sand.
He was able to put together a coalition.
25 or more countries.
Unheard of in modern day and it was solely on personal.
Persuasion and his own home.
Experience and knowledge and the people lead that coalition is really quite unprecedented I mean it was.
Almost all the rest of the world against Iraq.
One -- form the international coalition George Herbert Walker Bush faced an agonizing decision.
How the 41 president confronted the dictator Saddam Hussein.
After a break.
Just two hours ago allied air forces began an attack on military targets in Iraq and -- You talk about what an awful decision was that he was the one.
Who had to give -- order.
Which would mean a -- And that was.
Our strategy to go after this -- is very very simple.
First we're gonna have crossed the room and kill of this brutal dictator will do.
Use any weapon no matter how many innocents.
Suffer he had an instinct for what resurrect him time.
I was -- And part of that coalition that he -- That included.
The -- this was not just American foreign policy Saddam wasn't.
Nasty -- to -- this was international aggression.
Our armed forces and talk with honor and -- and I can report to the nation aggression is defeated the war is over.
Operation Desert Storm was considered a success listing just 43 -- news.
It is contributing to this victory for world peace and justice.
Is the same spirit.
It gives us the power and the potential.
To meet our toughest challenges at home.
Meanwhile he and his administration continued to tread softly dealing with the shrinking Soviet Union.
We tried to move -- at a pace which would.
Not in danger Gorbachev and eventually there was a cool but by then it was.
-- -- -- -- Actually -- the Soviet Union right out from under.
I don't look commute -- that President Bush had told us -- -- I don't want any gloating.
We have a lot of business deal to do.
With the leaders -- -- so.
I don't foresee us anybody and frustration stick -- in there.
-- -- resigned December 25 1991.
And the Soviet Union dissolved the following day.
Had President Bush not -- into the -- did it could have been.
Bang and a whimper.
By the grace of god.
America won the Cold War.
The bush reelection campaign was based in part on the benefits of the peaceful end of the Cold War.
That people will do great things if only you set them free.
If we can change the world -- we can change America.
Free market the compassion government and service -- component.
Of the 41 president's agenda.
Bush clearly believe that this emphasis would encourage real change the service to others it's a -- source.
-- seeing communities gather around parents with a gravely ill child.
Helping them take care of the other children.
President Bush began his bid for reelection is approval ratings reach an 189%.
-- -- Trust in this election the candidate who -- raise taxes one time and regrets -- or the other candidate.
Who raise taxes and fees a hundred -- eight times and enjoyed it every time.
Reversing his 1988 promise read my lips no new taxes proved politically disastrous.
One reason his numbers ultimately plummeted to 33%.
I made a bad call on the Democrats tax increase.
I underestimated Congress's addiction to taxes.
And -- my back against the wall and I -- go hard bargain.
One tax increase one time in return for the toughest spending limits ever.
Bush -- for twelve years you've had it your way and it didn't work.
I don't have any experience -- running -- -- trillion dollar debt he ran against a candidate.
President Clinton who's sad -- economy stupid.
And I saw his greatest triumph -- it turns against them.
The majesty of the democratic system I just -- that governor Clinton and offered my congratulations.
We lost that campaign because of Perot jumped and took 19% of the vote he took two thirds of -- -- us.
It's hers to lose some big night you feel let down people all the people in the White House -- discouraged and so I invited Dana Carvey.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The star -- mister Rogers it's a beautiful land and anger that.
At a little John Wayne Hale a gala scale of their -- and put -- together -- get yards Herbert -- -- -- During his final days of the White House President Bush worked diligently to recognize Americans who -- thought it made a difference.
We did it.
So that all of -- -- -- fun is successful.
As wanted to include serving others.
Use that sentence more than any other sentence in his presidency because.
He felt that it was important.
To keep triggering people to think differently about what they thought and what they believed was success in their lives.
One thing is for sure.
I did not lack for inspiration -- support during those four years.
whether we got some things right history can make that determination.
Up next what does a former president do after life in the White House.
Well here's a hint he doesn't sit in -- -- Always an avid sportsman George H.
Bush is the only US president ever -- -- -- its record of five not that it will work to bail out.
Seems likely to stand for a long time.
He sees those jumps as missions with the messages.
Even when he jumps out of an airplane that he makes it cause to help.
Institutions like the Indian Ocean futures.
Just two years old guy you don't have to sit around drooling in the -- Ha ha ha ha ha.
Life for a former president can bring serious threats such as the failed assassination attempt in 1993.
During a visit to Kuwait there.
Sixteen men were convicted.
George Bush has been honored for his life of service in many ways.
USS George H.
Bush was commissioned in -- eleven.
Fitting for a former naval aviator the ship is an aircraft care.
He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth.
From the kuwaitis he received the door inscribed with the ancient proverb.
When a man gives you the key was home it means that the best and most valuable friend.
-- fugitive nor does home mean to you were one of his family.
This is one of the many exhibits -- his presidential Library and Museum.
I've always wondered what my mother would think about this this library.
He might saving me George don't you think it's a little egotistical.
But there's everything -- years -- nominating.
George -- mother was proud of her son's achievements and the effect she believed his attitude of service -- within the bush family.
Twenty years ago my father started the points of light institute.
Over thirty million Americans were volunteering annually.
Today over sixty million Americans are serving.
There is evidence mr.
Bush's life has inspired others around the world.
In the last twenty years since President Bush started.
-- -- -- points of light movement.
There's been a huge adoption.
Points of life CEO Michelle Nunn and chairman Neil -- cite statistics indicating that voluntarism movement is growing.
To go from point five million to 64 million Americans serving in twenty years just imagine what problems we can -- in America we get a hundred million.
People volunteering -- a year from now.
I think everybody wants to feel.
That sense of being in touch with something that is bigger than themselves and the trick is to call on people to act upon that and.
My brother Glen you know he lived his life.
And died in service to other people.
A highlight of the conference on volunteering and service was a recognition of -- his brother's sacrifice on September 11 when it successfully advocated that 9/11 becoming national day of service and remember.
It it embraces.
That spirit of compassion and community service that was so natural and evident immediately after the attacks.
Since 1989 thousands of individuals and organizations have been recognized for solving community problems through voluntary service.
When Haiti happened.
Saw on the news like everyone else immediately knew we had to get involved from corporations and mobilize -- employees and resources.
To young people helping in -- ways I was able to promote -- projects and gates wants students and thinkers.
Sounds good in school and through their giving each -- receive something more valuable than war.
Personally what I get out of this problem is saying I mean I think I always take away more than again I'm not gonna solve the world's problems I might be part of itself now become.
Computing and now have to win -- are.
Yeah on the -- unresolved.
He pointed -- my success isn't having a lot of money you know.
Being a celebrity.
-- you know because I've gone through all that.
But the thing is.
All but let's not -- -- fine I still having the heart and all that time.
Chuck Norris a friend and supporter President Bush became a point of light for creating kick start kids.
Martial arts program designed for at risk kids we have graduated 70000.
The last ten years and most of going on college as a friend Norris was invited to join President Bush's eightieth birthday celebration.
As a journalist I was invited to.

And then in the Gulf Coast after Katrina.
It was an amazing experience.
And this man -- not always liked and respected and then.
Run against literally came to love -- cool.
And they value that was like on Iraq.
In becoming president of the United States.
How can keep that really if your if your goal is to make a difference in the lives of millions of people not just in the United States but around the world.
