We were eight Years in Power, a legacy adored.

When I wrote the memoir for my role model, President Obama and his beautiful family, I thought I was saying bye with tears of joy and I wouldn’t be tempted to write anything again before I met him in person—well, I was so wrong, I have since written many pieces where his legendary name surfaces as a re-enforcer to my points [remember, as Mrs. Clinton said recently while delivering her acceptance speech, he is the ‘explainer in chief’].

What I have learned from this great man and his phenomenal wife, FLOTUS Michelle Obama, is absolutely beyond description: all I can say is that it makes me wake up each day with morale to work hard and one day inspire people like these two have inspired my person over the years. Yes, I have learned over the years that good deeds are contagious—we either do and write about them or live by them our entire lives.That 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 Awesome .

POTUS OBAMA & his beautiful Michelle
President Obama has time and again sung praise to his beautiful wife Michelle Obama; and how he affectionately loves her; adores her curves and how he is lucky to have her for a wife. I have also seen and heard President Obama tell the world how being a dad to his beautiful daughters his first job, for all these he is completely accurate, indeed he is a very blessed man: with Michelle and the girls. In one of the interviews with US magazine two years ago, he is quoted saying: “the fact that they got a tall, gorgeous mom who has some curves, and that their father appreciates, I think is helpful’, Obama said of his kids Malia and Sasha, he went on to say, “when you are a dad of two daughters you more’, he explained. “When I was a kid, I didn’t realize the enormous pressure that young women are placed under in terms of looking a certain way”. In a very interesting interview with Barbara Walters a while ago, Michelle says words that are very fundamental for this this paragraph, about happiness, she says: Happiness is family—the health of family—just to keep it short. I could go on and on, but when my family is good, I am good.

The passing of the iconic Nelson Mandela was a very tough time I bet—right from what his spoke about him and how what he stood for on the face of the earth [even with his living legacy], I am saying that because as I wrote earlier in the memoir; it is because of President Obama’s involvement in the apartheid that he realized that he actually had ideas that were brilliant; who knows if that’s what set the pace for the man we celebrate today?

He said it categorically clear that the world may never see the likes of Mandela again, his healing speech for so many of us that grieved the icon were so blessed to hear words like these:
“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!
The late Maya Angelou, whose legacy will forever live on ,is one of the most phenomenal writers I have ever known [the world will ever know]—there are so many writers that have inspired my person especially in the course of doing what I can in the restoration of civil liberties but yeah,Maya is alegend!Whiles President Obama was speaking out there about the passing of this literal guru, giving hope and comforting her bereaved family—celebrating her life, in a soothing speech, he said these comforting words [an excerpt chosen with intent]: “Like so many others, Michelle and I always cherish the time we were privileged to spend time with Maya with a kind word and strong embrace, she had the ability to remind us that we are all God’s children; that we all have something to offer. And while Maya’s day maybe done, we take comfort in knowing that her song will continue “flung in Heaven’—and we celebrate the dawn that Maya helped us bring”. Every bit of this speech is a healing word and if there is anything that anybody who wanted a kind word to hear, it is the beautiful words of President Obama: thanks again, Mr. President.
When I read about Joe Biden’s birthday gift to President Obama, I couldn’t resist sharing it on facebook; [this article being my gift to President Obama for his 55thbirthday, I vowed to make it the best thing I have ever written],for I had spent the whole day in my room reminiscing through the years and writing. These two, Vice President Joe Biden & President Barack Obama, will pass down in History as the most adorable set I have known years [besides President Bill Clinton and Al Gore; and of course the upcoming Hillary-Kaine Presidency];they have been two mature adults who looked out for not only themselves but America and the whole world. The speech President Obama gave when Beau Biden passed on helped a lot when I lost dad and as I wrote an eulogy for my father. His speech was so full of love and an indescribable sense of personhood and human decency:

“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.

Obama weeping while addressing the Sandy Hook Shootings
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’.
His message of reconciliation with the `past [when Dylan Roof and his race war instinct killed many]—At the honorable reverend; Clement Pinckney’s funeral, I must say if the perpetrators of hate and bigotry had listened well-enough, those words would have certainly made it impossible to have the careless mistakes we have seen since. In very articulate healing words, he said:
“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

President Obama’s love for the environment is something that will forever be remembered in the Politics of this Universe. He has met the very ugly critics [the republicans who think global warming is a myth [; but soldiering on, taking it to the World Paris Climate Change Summit with thorough and stellar explanations could never explain better the always challenged; but never equaled intelligence of this man.Back home, the republican cynics who are only good at yammering and bickering, would rather listen to these words if they are so averse to reading them: “Nearly 200 nations have assembled here this week—a declaration that for all the challenges we face, the growing threat of climate change could define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other. What should give us hope that this is a turning point, that this is the moment we finally determined to save our planet, is the fact that our nations share a sense of urgency about this challenge and a growing realization that it is within our power to do something about it.Our understanding of the ways human beings disrupt the climate advances by the day.Fourteen of the warmest years on record have occurred since 2000—and 2015 is on pace to be the warmest year of all. No nation—large or small, wealthy or poor—is immune to what this means”. This ends with a reminder that back at home Michelle is insisting, go veggy,oh how sweet!: the world has been so blessed to have you, in earnest.
President Obama has proven beyond doubt that surely America is a place where liberty, equality and the pursuit of happiness are engrained in the American creed. For me, I first didn’t understand how he found gay marriage a call to make, but the day I went back to the drawing board; I realized. I intentionally chose this photo of President Obama and Pope Francis because if there is anyone from whom I have learned tolerance the last eight years, it is these two men. Right from the refugee crisis the world faces and immigration laws to radical jihadism and all there is to this subject—they have exuded utter understanding that we are one human race, who if only we become tolerant enough; shall we live in Peace and harmony as one strong universal family.


I wouldn’t feel at ease if I didn’t share this beautiful photo—the most politically mature souls I have encountered in a long while, I have said this before [a zillion times it turns out] and I will still say it as Hillary swears in January 2017.Yes President Obama surely deserves a good laugh—he has had the most insane republican obstructionism since President Bill Clinton but yet still; as goes the saying that
nothing baffles the achemes of the enemy like a composed soul
it is Barack that has had the highest approval ratings since Bill Clinton. He has certainly earned the recognition and to slide his legacy to a bigoted demagogue that Donald Trump is would be ‘sanity insanity’. So, it is and will be Hillary Rodham Clinton, first female President of the United States. From what I see, the solid maths is that surely History is going to be re-written for the second time.

In life, there are two things: ‘you dream and then put your will to action’ .It’s been a long while since I sang Praise for President Obama&Michelle, President Bill Clinton &Hillary—whilst proclaiming I am going to sit on one table and have a good laugh with them someday. To so many pessimists, who doubt the audacity of hope, it’s me staring at my own narvel: the good news to me and those who believe in the power of hard work, it’s real and against that background I proclaim the LORD will make it happen. I have said I want to be Africa’s greatest youngest writer before. Recently after I had written the full Hillary Clinton endorsement on behalf on #TeamHillaryUganda [a volunteer team steering the launch of the first female POTUS] ,one of the people that admire my life’s work, just like Owen Erima &Peri Harris [co-founders of the volunteer team] and so many others ,my sister in Christ , Diana Kakeeto, wrote to me words that I can’t resist sharing in a such a piece:

Grace Abaho Sr, maximum respect to you in Jesus’ name. Thank you so much for the article. With busy life sometimes, I don’t watch the news; check the internet or read newspapers so you helped me catch up with a lot. Loved it, loved it and loved it.Grace,in life some people will not give you positive criticism because they want you to feel worthless, bring you down or lower your self-esteem. Ignore them and focus. Just don’t forget to kneel before God and commit your passion/plans in his hands. Remember: ‘WHEN YOU KNEEL BEFORE GOD; EVERYTHING ELSE WILL KNEEL BEFORE YOU.WHEN YOU FOCUS YOUR EYES ON GOD; EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FOCUS ON YOU’. You gona be one of the greatest writers the world has ever known in Jesus’ name. Keep it up and God bless”

Diana has insinuated that I look like President Obama before, so I took myself to the test and that’s what I found. If you haven’t laughed throughout the article, here is the time for you to take a good laugh, read on. If the Lord answers the Prayers, when I meet up with President Obama, one of the things will be to ask him to take the mirror with me and see how resemble.Maybe, I said maybe, we could be related: between now and then, my faith card is cast and I continue to ask the Lord to bless President Obama and his family, President Bill Clinton and his family, all those that have supported my writing career in ways possible and that America will go to the voting booth in November and elect Hillary Clinton for a massive win she deserves. Amen


  1. I wanted to refer you to read the Last Lecture: Achieving your Childhood dreams by Randy Pausch. It will resonate with your article

  2. "If the Lord answers the Prayers, when I meet up with President Obama, one of the things will be to ask him to take the mirror with me and see how resemble." lovely

  3. If the Lord answers the Prayers, when I meet up with President Obama, one of the things will be to ask him to take the mirror with me and see how resemble.

  4. Thanks to Obama. I learned what love of Country really means.I don't take my freedoms for granted.I Became a Fighter for my Country and My Beliefs.I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe is wrong.As we have a New Beginning with President Trump...Hope & change has a New Meaning for me, not just words. God Bless America!

Grab him by the ballot

Morality can be so interesting to watch when a very immoral person like Donald Trump is playing the morality police. It has been a turn of events since the last debate —when the Donald learned he was losing terribly, he resorted to the final deep end drive into the conquest for the bottom of the barrel—his campaign has been always about impure rhetoric but this time, he didn’t pretend for a second, what I don’t understand though is why a man would pride in being remembered for the creepiest things ever said for a man as old as 70 years. I have seen the very big hypocrites of the republican party ditch their party leader on the side of the road albeit I can’t fathom why and how they stood on his side this long—if there’s one sure thing, putting up with the stupidity that tags along being in the Donald’s cult is a twenty four-hour exercise equivalence, it’s a very tough place to be: full of vile utterances and always denying facts even understood by a five year old.

Hillary Clinton is Presidential

I want to begin with what Donald said about Hillary as he openly endorsed her for the job: “she is a fighter and she never quits, I admire that about her”. The last many three decades of the republican witch-hunt on the Clinton family have molded the incoming 45th of the United States, Hillary Clinton: she and her husband have been through the fire but have still soared so high, proof positive that nothing baffles the achemes of the enemy like a composed soul. Being a Clinton maybe hard but might as well be one of the most rewarding experiences in self-composure and self-discovery. As I said in the first debate commentary ; for those who had doubts, she mopped the floor with an ignorant bigot—she did it again and we are proud of her. The last couple of days have been filled with the most sickening news of the republican flag bearer’s advice; “Grab their p***y”; seeing many republicans un-endorse their nominee and billions of people around the world have the republican party for

When they go low, we go high.

T his wallpaper and I almost fought a duel to point of death, to take over on my phone and laptop screen saver space, but I had to give up very easily because these beautiful words come from one of the most inspirational people in my life . President Obama you are a very blessed man, no wonder you immediately proudly tweeted: “ incredible speech by an incredible woman.Couldn't be more proud and our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS.I love you, Michelle ”. Michelle Obama stole the show, rather perfectly it turns out—and then there was Sen.Booker,they certainly had to be prime speakers, leave alone for Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders who never minces words when it comes to putting Donald Trump in his place. I have waited for this day, almost very impatiently, until it dawned—it was a very rewarding night for me here in Uganda after the continuous and disastrous bigotry from the Trump camp. I must say with pride that if there is anything

Hillary Clinton is certainly prepared to be President

President Obama & Sec Clinton having a chit-chat T he Question of whether she is the most qualified candidate America has ever had for a presidential candidate has never been so answered; for those who had doubts, she came to stage and spoke it with illustration(s), verve and swagger throughout the 90 minutes of the debate at Hofstra University. She eloquently made it clear to her opponent that not only did she prepare for the debate, that her opponent seemed to have been so yappy about; but also proved and lived to the hype of what was expected of her: she mopped the floor with the Donald, I have never laughed so loud, at an ignorant bigot being thumped by an intelligent woman.

In the TV Series, REVENGE, Chronicling the life of a Distraught Emily Thorne: SEASON 1, EPISODE 7 "Charade”, As Hamlet said to Ophelia, "God has given you one face and you make yourself another." The battle between these two halves of identity who we are and who we pretend to be is unwinnable. (This is referring to Shakespeare's famous tragedy Hamlet. These words are said to Ophelia, Hamlet's girlfriend, in anger and frustration). Just as there are two sides to every story, there are two sides to every person. One that we reveal to the world and another we keep hidden inside. A duality governed by the balance of light and darkness. Within each of us is the capacity for both good and evil. But those of us who are able to blur the moral dividing line hold the true power.


Photo source: daily dot I am deeply honored to be telling the vision that has since been on my mind for a while in the most possible way I have ever imagined. I have wracked my mind how best I would tell it; it was not until I was admiringly looking at Mrs. Clinton’s photos  recently and I got the picture (above) that would best tell what I envision in the Presidency of the first female President of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton . As I have noted time and again, if there is anything that I admire about President Obama and Mrs. Clinton among the very many things, it’s their authentic selves—especially in the realm of political maturity , for purposes of this article. As I noted earlier in the road to President Hillary Clinton , her resilience is certainly a thing anyone in the world would admire, she is indeed is a fighter—“fighting for us, we are stronger together”, do those words ring a bell? By now they should be the words every sane American has subscrib

Barack . H. Obama, the Lasting Imprint.

I may never be the President of the United States or even my country, Uganda , but I am going to die one day and when I am no longer here, my son and those that read about my name should know that President Obama & Michelle have inspired my person, a lot. I was reading Christopher Hitchens book, Mortality, a while ago and reviews of his memoir, Hitchens 22 , these words really touched me a lot: “ I have more than once woken up feeling like death. But nothing prepared me for the early morning in June when I came to consciousness feeling as If I were shackled to my own corpse ”—he goes on to quote Saul Bellow : “ Death is the dark backing that a mirror needs if we are able to see anything ”. I told my surrogate mother, Tabitha Scaife , I would do this before I leave the face of the earth and she said, “ Do it sonny, I believe you are very well equipped ”. Ma, thanks for elevating my confidence . Love you, to Life!

Dear President Obama, thank you for being.

Dear President Obama,  I greet you in the name above all names. I waited to write to you my second letter after your final SOTU (state of the union) address not as my last letter to you but as a letter of appreciation for the almost concluded two terms of office .Allow me to first express how so humbled to write to a man whose name has been engraved upon the marble of history. I have fortunately had a few days to prepare otherwise I would make very terrible sentences herein. Again, I am lucky to address a man whose kindred spirit is ingrained in equality and the pursuit of happiness. The last time I wrote to you, I critiqued you. Today, I have very deep gratitude for how fundamentally influential you are and will forever be to my Life and I pray to the life of my descendants. I remember well, in the 2007 democratic primaries that shaped the arc of history of the American Dream, I didn’t support you then.Actually,apart from the inescapable thing we have in common,blackness,I
