Inscription.

The United States Department of

George Herbert Walker Bush, President of the United States of America

I'd like to place an old fashioned school bell in every school in America. That bell would toll and say “America, something important is about to happen. Send your sons and daughters prepared to learn.”

We must heed the tolling of the School Bell.
