I'm extremely proud of this page in my book

From page xxi of "Craig MacFarlane Hasn't Heard of Your Either!"

By George H.W. Bush

It is my pleasure to tell you about a truly remarkable person, Craig MacFarlane. I first met Craig in 1984 when President Reagan invited him to carry the Olympic torch through Washington D.C., on its way to the Los Angeles Games. Craig is a man whose own inner flame of determination, boundless energy and courage served as a point of light in countless lives. That is why we asked Craig to join our Reagan-Bush All Star Team during the 1984 Republican National Conventions. Each time, Craig carried with dignity and clarity, his inspirational message that through hard work, dedication, strength of character and purpose, we can all achieve our goals. Despite being blinded at the age of 2, Craig's accomplishments in a wide variety of sports are incredible. He exemplifies the kind of indomitable spirit that makes America great. Craig's career has continued beyond athletics. Craig MacFarlane has taken his message of P.R.I.D.E. - Perseverance, Respect, Individuality, Desire and Enthusiasm - to almost 3,000 high schools and countless businesses. Barbara and I are proud to call Craig a friend. I invite you to meet him yourself through the pages of this book and discover the fire within that can touch and inspire us all.
