It’s a deeply unsettling thing for me, to admire strangers like I do the Obamas. But they have an undeniable magnetism, Michelle and Barack - I can’t help but feel familiar. As they leave the White House I’m reflecting on why the 44th POTUS and FLOTUS make me feel this way. And it’s this. If I ever needed a picture of enduring hope, if I ever needed an education in love and leadership, if I ever needed a story on what it means to be black, to be brilliant, to be beautiful and complex, they provided it all. What a legacy.


Well said. I concur. They'll be sorely missed!

This is everything.
