When George H.W. Bush — aka “Bush 41” — was president he famously gave out awards for his “thousand points of light” as a way to recognize people doing noble volunteer work.
And now that the ex-president has shaved his head in solidarity with a 2-year-old leukemia patient, Patrick, maybe he should give himself one of those points of light.
Patrick is the son of a Secret Service agent, Jon, who is assigned to Bush’s security detail in Kennebunkport, Maine. (Their last names were withheld at the family’s request.)
Recently, other members of the security unit started to bare their domes in support of Patrick, and they started to raise money for his treatment.
