Cade Foster, the embattled kicker for the University of Alabama, posted online Wednesday night a photo of a letter he received from former President George W. Bush

"Dear Cade (#43), Life has its setbacks. I know! However you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best," the 43rd President wrote.

Years later, toward the end of Bush’s presidency, members of the band U2 weighed whether to pose for photographs with Bush if it meant increased publicity for their charitable work in Africa. The Edge told the music magazine NME in 2009, “Hanging out with George W. Bush—which [Bono] knew was uncool, deeply unpopular in certain quarters—he knew for his own reasons that it would get results. And he was right. The amount of extra American investment in African development that occurred during that administration, compared to even the Clinton administration, was huge.”
