Bill Clinton

Former American President Bill Clinton visited the Oklahoma City National Memorial on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 for the 15 year anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. He also received the Reflections of Hope Award from the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.


“In 1976, Clinton was elected Arkansas Attorney General, and became governor in 1978. He lost a bid for a second term, but regained the office four years later, serving until he defeated incumbent George Bush, Sr., and third party candidate Ross Perot in the 1992 presidential race. President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore represented the first time in twelve years that both the White House and Congress were held by the same party. In 1996, Clinton was re-elected president. During the Clinton administration, the U.S. enjoyed more peace and economic well-being than at any time in history. He boasted the lowest unemployment rate in modern times, the lowest inflation in 30 years, the highest home ownership in the country’s history, dropping crime rates in many places, and reduced welfare roles.
Clinton was initiated into Hot Springs Chapter in Hot Springs, Arkansas, in 1961, where he served as Master Councilor. He received the Chevalier in 1964, and the Legion of Honor in 1979. Clinton was inducted into the DeMolay Hall of Fame on May 1, 1988.

“For sixty-nine years, the Order of DeMolay has prepared young men to become better citizens and leaders for our country. My DeMolay experience gave me the confidence to develop my skills as a speaker, team member, and leader, and then to realize and accomplish my dreams. I will always be thankful for the guidance given to me by my friends in DeMolay. ””-

At the time of his graduation, he won a Rhodes Scholarship to University College, Oxford.

“What’s happened in America today is too many people live in areas where there’s no family structure, no community structure, and no work structure. And so there’s a lot of irresponsibility. And so a lot of people say there’s too much personal freedom. When personal freedom’s being abused, you have to move to limit it. That’s what we did in the announcement I made last weekend on the public housing projects, about how we’re going to have weapon sweeps and more things like that to try to make people safer in their communities.”-William J. Clinton MTV’s “Enough is Enough”  April 19, 1994
