The Past Eight Years with the Obamas

I  like what president Obama did as president of the United States for 8 years. I felt tingles of inspiration when he said certain things. His words stated that he believed in humanity and the ability of anyone. Since the possibility our country offers is one of its primary attributes his leadership and ideas fit well with our people. He was an advocate of change and open mindedness. Sure, there are things you could list as faults but it’s not hard to like him. I’ve put together some intriguing photographs by Pete Souza along with a few other creative compilations as a way of commenting on his past 8 years in presidential office.

It’s all connected. I love the idea if people realized we were each other we wouldn’t be mean to others.  I don’t know really know what kind of person Trump is but I know that even if the worst happens, we will learn something – which makes whatever experience useful.

Michelle has undoubtedly been part of her husband’s success. He helped her be better and vice versa.

It has been great to have had an example of two people in love having such prominence in our country for 8 years!

I have heard creative geniuses imagine structures like this. I have no idea what it is called or its function but my curiosity perked when I saw it.

Have you seen the meme of Obama shooting rainbows riding a unicorn? It’s mocking his treatment of gay marriage, which is why it is not included here. I do like that he advocated for love.

Our country’s time with him leading  is gone. I had tried to link his farewell speech to this post but could not get it to work. It was good and I would encourage you to watch it. The linked site also has the full transcript. It’s pretty neat.

I found another neat video. This one focuses on the enigma our country has before us. As expected from Obama, he is looking toward possibility. It will be best for us to be open as a people to what Mr. Trump has to offer, as he was doing in the blue light up machine. We  should all put ourselves on our to do list before we look outward.
