UNIVERSITY PARK—The journey starts simply enough.
"The presidency is more than an honor. It is more than an office. It is a charge to keep and I will give it my all."
Those words written on an entryway wall—first spoken by George W. Bush on Dec. 13, 2000 in Austin—greet visitors as they walk into the museum at the George W. Bush Presidential Center.
A brief history of Bush, and his family life, is on display before the key moments of the Bush presidency are detailed in photos, news articles and video clips throughout the 14,000-square-feet of exhibit space in the center that will officially be unveiled during an invitation-only ceremony today.
Bush will be joined by President Barack Obama and the three other living ex-presidents—George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter—during an exclusive, 1 1/2 hour dedication ceremony marking the completion of the library, museum and political institute commemorating the 43rd president's eight years in the White House.
