George W. Bush was the 43rd president of the United States of America, the son of a former president. Bush was born in 1946, in New Haven, Connecticut. He got a degree from Yale and was known for always making his friends laugh. Bush became president in 2000 and was re-elected in 2004. He served as president during the Iraq war.

Adversity is anything that wants to stop you in your path to achieving a goal. On September 11, 2001, two passenger planes crashed into the Twin Towers in New York City. One plane hit the Pentagon and one plane, aiming for the White House, crashed in Pennsylvania. President Bush believed that a terrorist from Iran named Osama Bin Laden had planned the attack, and Bush led the county in searching for him.

President Bush faced many challenges, such as skilled resisters who were educated in weaponry, bomb attacks in America, and trying to convince other nations to work with the United States in their search. Bush overcame all of these obstacles, and ran Osama Bin Laden into the mountains, where he was then found and killed by the U.S. military.

In conclusion, George W. Bush was a president who had to face terrorists and keep America safe, and one who did so and overcame all adversity.
