BushGroundbreakingDue to this week’s unveiling and dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center, I thought it appropriate to post this photo I took at the groundbreaking in 2010.  At the time, Cheney was at the podium speaking about Bush’s response to the attacks on 9/11 when Laura reached a single finger over to touch her husband’s hand–a tender, subtle gesture.  That slight movement of a pinkie in a fleeting moment spoke volumes.

My former colleagues and friends have done a wonderful job covering the new facility, and I’m thankful to feel connected to them, even if by a long stretch, through this photo from the center’s start.
