What maybe the greatest riddle of our time is the unforgettable question from the iconic Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr: “Life’s persistent and most Urgent Question is: “what are you doing for others? I have seen President Obama do a zillion things not only for the best of the United States but rather the whole world, for that I am utterly thankful for his unflinching sacrifice for the common good of his fellow human siblings. President Obama has been a strong father, a great husband to Michelle Obama, a legendary President and certainly a legendary universal citizen. This article will chronicle some of the memories that have been and will continue to ennoble me as I chase my dreams. I will start off with a video clip to Michelle and Barack, read on.

I have often said to those who question the praise that I sing for President Obama; ‘he isn’t an angel’, but the life he has led is one any sane human being should pride in—and hold by the handle, there are very many life-changing lessons, especially if you want to dial back optimism into your life. For me, as I write this, I cast my faith card that if I stay on track with what I have learned from this great man; I am going to be everything that I have for a dream: when I meet with him, part of what I intend to do before I leave the face of the earth, I want us to reminisce about these things and take a good laugh together. I want to tell him,Mr.President,lets take a good look down memory lane, see how absolutely phenomenal you have been to the world—indeed, as Mark Twain once said, you have lived the second most important day of your life: doing what you are meant to do, that’s what I want to do with my life equally.
President Obama and his dear wife Michelle Obama, the first lady of the United States, have led a very exemplary life not only for their children [Malia&Sasha] but for everyone: especially more, the future presidents of the united states, in earnest; there is a lot the future leaders of this greatest nation on earth have to take from Barack & Michelle.Personally,FLOTUS Michelle Obama has set the bar so high for the woman I will have for a wife in wife, I have vowed not to settle for anything less than Michelle Obama & Hillary Clinton: because, I am going to work each day to be like President Obama & Bill Clinton, a win-win situation for me—MICHELLE OBAMA IS DOPE.

“it is hard to eulogize any man—to capture in words not just the facts and the dates that make a life, but the essential truth of a person—their private joys and sorrows; the quiet moments and unique qualities that illuminate someone’s soul. How much harder to so for a giant of History, whomove a nation toward justice and in the process moved billions around the world”, he went on to say [PS: I love this part], “Given the sweep of his life, the scope of his accomplishments, the adoration that he so rightly earned, it is tempting to remember Nelson Mandela as an icon, smiling serene, detached from the tawdry affairs of lesser men. But Madiba himself strongly resisted such a lifeless portrait. Instead, Madiba insisted on sharing with us his doubts and fears; his miscalculations along his victories. ‘I am not a saint”, he said, “Unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps trying”. I remember I was doing my last papers for my first college degree but that week, I mourned and celebrated this icon’s life achievements—every time I had, in President Obama’s beautiful speech, I found solace no one else could give me; for that I am thankful!

“A man’, wrote an Irish man poet, “is original when he speaks the truth that has always been known to good men”, Beau was an original. He was a man of character. A man who was deeply loved and loved in return, he went on to say [words that helped so much as person and always will]: “without love, life can be cruel. Sometimes cruelty is deliberate—the action of bullies and bigots, or the inaction of those indifferent to another’s pain. But often, cruelty is simply born of life, a matter of fate or God’s will, beyond our mortal powers to comprehend. To suffer such faceless, seemingly random cruelty can harden the softest hearts, or shrink the sturdiest. It can make one mean, or bitter, or full of self-pity. Or, to paraphrase an old proverb, it can make you beg for lighter burden.
But if you are strong enough, it can also make you ask God for broader shoulders; broader enough to hear not only your own burdens, but the burdens of others; shoulders broad enough to shield those who need shelter the most. To know Beau is to know which choice he made in Life and the rest of the Biden family is to know why Beau lived the life he lived the life he did, For Beau, a cruel twist of fate came early—the car accident that took his mom and his sister, and confined Beau and Hunter, then still toddlers, to hospital beds at Christmastime”. These are very powerful words, trust me they will always live in Joe Biden’s heart: no wonder his 55th birthday message to Barack read, ‘you will always be my brother’.

“The bible calls us to hope. Topersevere, and have faith in things not seen. ‘They were living by faith when they died. Scripture tell us. “They didn’t receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers here on earth”. Talking about Reverend Pinckney [and I am more interested in this], he said: “He embodied the idea that our Christian faith demands deeds and not just words; that the ‘sweet hour of prayer’ actually lasts the whole week long—that to put our faith in action is more than individual salvation; it’s about our collective salvation; that to feed and close the naked and house the homeless is not just a call for isolated charity but the imperative of a just society”—as I wrote recently, this is what we talk about when we talk about collective salvation: STRONGER TOGETHER: ‘EUREKA’
