"The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved."-- Samuel Smiles🔹
President Obama's farewell speech to the Nation gave me the sliver of hope that I desperately needed🔹
Greatest US presidents of all time.
1. Abraham Lincoln2. FDR3. Barack Obama
Obama did the following.....created 11.3 million jobs.gave 20 million people Heath Insurance.Stopped Iran from getting nuclear weapons without firing a shot.Appointed Supreme Court justices that gave this country marriage quality. education policies madeHigh school graduation rates better then they were before.
And to all the ignorant hateful bigots out there that thinks Obama "created racism and division" in this country. let me tell you this. Racism and division has always been a part of America long before Obama. America was born on racism and division. Obama did not create it but he did expose it. You conservatives just want the division and racism to be covered up in a blanket and not exposed. And that's part of your white privilege.
It's now time for us to take up the mantle and keep up the good fight. We cannot backtrack. The future looks dark, but we could be the lights to illuminate it
I'm so grateful that I had the privilege to be alive these last eight years. The tears continue to roll. God Bless you President Obama & thank you and Michelle for your service
This made me tearful. I am so happy that he and his family will be free of the White House, wishing them peace, happiness and success and hopefully lots of visibility. Nevertheless I feel a bit of fear too.
I will watch this in the next couple weeks. I couldn't bring myself to watch it live. There's a perceived finality in my mind once I see it, and I'm prolonging that inevitable. I will sorely miss the intelligence, class and hope this man brought to the Oval Office.
Ten trillion in new debt, disaster in the war against terror, the greatest non-Participation rate in the labor force since Jimmy Carter, politicization of the IRS and Justice Department, NSA paying scandal, Fast and Furious, record welfare rolls.
Yeah, we'll miss you "pal."
"Watching Obama's farewell address, I can't help thinking how much I will miss having a president who speaks eloquently, is logical, coherent, has class, grace, and doesn't urinate on Russian hookers."

So thankful to have been so blessed these last eight years. Thank you to the Obama's and the Biden's....now let's see if I can stop crying.
You're policies sucked and so did your candidate and her husbands girlfriends and that's why your party lost to an outsider even with Wall Street, Washington, and the Media backing her.
