Franklin Graham (fiul lui Billy Graham): Apreciez că președintele George W. Bush și soția sa, Laura W. Bush, au venit să-și plătească respectul față de tatăl meu, astăzi, la Charlotte. A fost atât de frumos din partea lor. Tatăl meu ar fi fost onorat. Am împărtășit câteva amintiri minunate.
ENGLISH – Franklin Graham: I appreciate President George W. Bush and his wife Laura W. Bush coming to pay their respects to my father today in Charlotte. It was so good of them. My father would have been honored. We shared some great memories.
ENGLISH – Franklin Graham: Thank you President Bill Clinton for coming to Charlotte today to pay your respects to my father. We had a good visit, and President Clinton shared memories going back to the time when he was an 11-year-old boy in Arkansas and his Sunday school teacher took him to hear my father preach. We also had prayer together by my father’s casket before he left.
My father knew President Clinton back when he was Governor of Arkansas. The President tells the story of my father coming to Little Rock during the riots, and the calm that it brought to that city back in the late 1950’s. That calm was God speaking through my father.
President Clinton said, “So here we were with neighborhood after neighborhood after neighborhood in my state on the verge of violence, and yet tens of thousands of black and white Christians there, together in a football stadium. And when he issued the call at the end of his message, thousands came down, holding hands, arm in arm, crying. It was the beginning of the end of the Old South in my home state.”

Billy Graham Pastorul Președinților
Franklin Graham: Unii s-au referit la tatăl meu Billy Graham ca „Pastor al președinților”. El a cunoscut fiecare președinte din S.U.A. de la președintele Truman încoace și a avut o prietenie personală cu mulți dintre ei. Nu voi uita niciodată prima dată când m-a dus la Casa Albă ca adolescent tânăr în 1969 – am fost speriat de moarte. Am fost la cină într-o sâmbătă seara, iar tatăl meu m-a instruit că trebuie să mănânc totul din farfuria mea! De-a lungul vieții, a fost un privilegiu de a vedea relațiile calde pe care le-a avut cu atât de mulți lideri și cum Dumnezeu l-a folosit în viața lor. Vedeți câteva fotografii de pe parcursul anilor pe care le-am postat aici.
ENGLISH – Franklin Graham: Some have referred to my father Billy Graham as the “Pastor to Presidents.” He has known every U.S. president since President Truman, and had a personal friendship with many of them. I’ll never forget the first time he took me to the White House as a young teenager in 1969—I was scared to death. We went for dinner on a Saturday night, and my father instructed me that I had to eat everything on my plate! Throughout life, it has been a privilege to see the warm relationships he had with so many leaders and how God used him in their lives. Check out some of the photos from through the years that I’ve posted here.
