President George Bush’s Visit to The Inner City at ChristmasTruth!

Summary of eRumor:
First-hand account of a visit by George and Laura Bush to an inner city church in Alexandria, Virginia.
The writer says that after the media left, he expected the president to disappear too but that he and Mrs. Bush stayed behind interacting with inner city kids and parents.
The writer says it’s an example of the fact that Mr. Bush is authentic.
The Truth:
This was written and published by Charles Colson the founder of Prison Fellowship.
Colson was a figure in the Nixon administration and served time in prison for his role in the Watergate scandal and that spiraled into the historic resignation of Richard Nixon.
Colson’s imprisonment led to his becoming a Christian and founding Prison Fellowship.
Each year, Prison Fellowship sponsors “Angel Tree,” an effort that gives Christmas gifts to tens of thousands of the children of prison inmates.
On December 22, 2003, President and Mrs. Bush attended an Angel Tree event at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Alexandria.
That is the event described in this email by Charles Colson.
