A video from former President George W. Bush calls on American to end partisan divisions and work together to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The video was released Saturday by the George W. Bush Presidential Center. In the nearly three-minute video Bush said: “Let us remember how small our differences are in the face of this sheer threat.”

Continuing, he says, “In the final analysis, we are not partisan combatants. We are human beings, equally vulnerable and equally wonderful in the sight of God. We rise or fall together.”

Bush, who has rarely ventured into the public arena except for special events and to help raise the profile of several causes he supports, said in the video that “Let’s remember that the suffering we experience as a nation does not fall evenly.”
