As President Barack Obama leaves office to make way for the President-elect to be sworn in, it’s fitting to reflect on the strong impact that he has had during his eight years in office.
President Obama inherited a grave recession, and, despite coordinated obstructionism from a Republican-led Congress, he oversaw consistent job-creation every year since his tenure.
He provided universal healthcare coverage, engaged in regular talks on racial divide, got rid of Osama Bin Laden, promoted women’s rights, launched My Brother’s Keeper Alliance to provide training and job creation for Black and Latino young men, championed sensible gun control laws, among many other notable achievements.
Although he was disrespected repeatedly during his time in office, President Obama was the epitome of class. He was chic, cool, balanced, knowledgeable and forgiving.
I know I’m among many who will miss him as well as they example that his family set for the country. So I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to a President who made me proud.
Thank you President Obama. May God continue to guide and protect you and your family–OnPointPress.net–
