44th President of the United States of America
“We’ve made America a better, stronger place for the generations that will follow. We’ve run our leg in a long relay of progress, knowing that our work will always be unfinished. And we’ve reaffirmed the belief that we can make a difference with our own hands, in our own time. That’s the imperative of citizenship — the idea that, with hard work, and a generous heart toward our fellow Americans, people who love their country can change it.
I’m filled with so many emotions after President Obama’s Farewell Address last evening; ranging from wonderful personal memories, anguish, anger, and Pride. This morning, I’m also filled with a renewed sense of commitment and hope.
These past 8 years have been living proof that we can be a more progressive, inclusive, loving America. The President brought out the best and sadly the worse in the American people but also taught us a lesson, one I hope we all learn; for always, “The Struggle Continues”.

President Obama was eloquent, dignified, passionate, and very loved by an audience of 20,000 whose shouts of 4 more years filled the capacity full convention center. Watching on television, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to bid adieu to My President. A man who taught me how to organize, get fired up, and that We the People have the power to affect Change.

Make no mistake, we shall not see the likes of a Barack Hussein Obama ever again. Once in a lifetime comes a human spirit who captures the hearts and minds of millions and energized a nation to move forward and be the “Change We Seek”.
A family man and loving husband. (Wow, integrity on Capitol Hill!) He’s the real deal. Those that claim to hate him will live to regret their obstructionism and racism. Those of us who love him are filled with Pride and Admiration for a man who worked so hard, dreamed so big, and accomplished so much!
I will not say farewell to 44 but instead, welcome to Part 2 of our goals to perfect a more perfect union.
