More now on the celebration of the life of president George H.W. Bush, a huge advocate for those with disabilities and we'll go back to George in Washington with more. Yeah, I want to share an image from last night that is remarkable. You see in the capitol rotunda right there, you see all these people in wheelchairs coming to pay their respects over the last 35 hours and that harkens back to 1990 when president bush signed the Americans with disabilities act which transformed America for peeps with disabilities and completely changed the access to public institutions and public buildings and private buildings as well and that tribute that we saw there in the rotunda was for the work of president bush on that and before we go, I do want to share one other image shared by the president's staff. It was sent out last night. He was talking about as you see all those people in the rotunda when he was briefed about his funeral in 2011 he asked do you think anyone will come? Well, we have seen the answer over these last several days as the whole country has celebrated this president. We're going to continue that coverage with the funeral here at Washington's national cathedral and our live coverage will start at 10:00 eastern.
