This is why our current administration feels like an alternate reality. Just 3 months ago I was picnicking on the White House lawn with folks gathered together to talk and learn about creativity, art, technology. It was such a beautiful day in all senses of the word. We need to keep this energy alive, as hard as it may seem. #sxsl

I was here five months ago to celebrate #sxsl with President Obama. Now I'm here with a million American feminists and their allies protesting for basic civil rights. And wondering if the new president is going to send people out with cans of gold spray paint and a giant sign a la his hotels. #womensmarch #womensmarch2017 #signs #showup #womensmarchonwashington

Literally having heart palpitations and stomach aches as the 20th approaches. @barackobama You represented the greatest characteristics of America and I am heartbroken that your successor is someone who represents the absolute worst of our country. I am SO thankful that I got to visit and dance on @whitehouse grounds twice while you were in office. Thank you for opening up your home to countless artists, thinkers, challengers of the status-quo, scientists and citizens from all over the world. You will be missed beyond comprehension. #dontLeave #barackObama #thebest #thewhitehouse #tapdance #sxsl #thankful #columbia #dance #tapintoEquality #obamacare #civilrights

Throw back to one of the best, most inspired days of 2016 - #sxsl @obamawhitehouse. These past 8 years flew by too fast, but as Obama just said, "This (read: Trump) is a pit stop. A comma, not a period." Could not be more ready to march tomorrow. #WomensMarch #pussygrabsback #fucktrump #notmypresident

Saying #byeobama, I think of the time I went to the White House, half shook the President's hand twice, and was quoted in @pitchfork about his relationship to hip-hop #onceinalifetimeexperience #neveragain #bestwhitehouseever #obamafarewell #sxsl #thankyou #holdingmybreathforthenextfouryears

I feel so fortunate to have visited the white house on this beautiful day in october, surrounded by so many people doing great work around the world. Reposting a longer version of Common's accapella rhymes from that day. Proud that this happened on the white house lawn. Keep on keepin on.

We made our very first Unlearn Fear and Hate t-shirt for Nathan Zamarron to wear to Washington DC for Barack Obama's South By Southlawn event. Nathan was wearing the tshirt when he shook Obama's hand and we are sharing Nathan's photo with tremendous gratitude for 8 years of Obama. #sxsl #unlearnfearandhate #tshirt

I was lucky enough to go to 3 White House events in the last year of the Obama Administration and witness the good he put out into the world up close. @paigewasilewski took this photo as he left #SXSL, right next to the Rose Garden. (I was next to her but I'm short & could only get a pic of the back of the guy in front of me.) Thanks, Paige. Thanks, Obama.

#TBT to #SXSL- one of the most inspiring-energizing days of my life. It's crazy to think how much will change in this building tomorrow, and how much work lies ahead. The πŸ”₯ is officially blazing under my bum - ready for action! #obamafarewell #nastywoman #thefutureisfemale ❀❀❀

I was inspired to keep fighting for a better America, the place I call home, today after hearing the @barackobama speech. I was invited to Chicago for the farewell speech but couldn't make the trip happen. I was honored to have been invited. I was also very honored to have been invited to #sxsl @whitehouse last year to be in the presence of so many forward thinking people working hard to make this country an accepting place, a place where all our cultural differences are embraced and respected. Thank you for leaving office on a positive note and also inspiring us to stay active in our communities, to pave a way for a better future, not to sit back and watch it pass by. If something is bothering us we must speak up. Don't ever give up hope. The time to act is now #YesWeCan

Such a wonderful man and a great leader of this country for the past 8 years. It was greater than an honor to meet Potus Barack Obama. He will be more than missed by this country! Thank you a thousand times, Mr. President. #barackobama #farwell #sxsl #honored #youwilbemissed #potus #mrpresident

Watching @barackobama's final speech to the nation and thinking back to my time at the @whitehouse. I don't know when I'll be back but you bet I will be one day. Bring on the next four years! #SXSL #ThanksObama

@leonardodicaprio As one of ordinary people interested in climate change, l understand and aware of upcoming adversity to human beings including flora and fauna due to acummulating greenhouse gas on our earth; nevertheless, we are usually accustomed to rely on convenient ways of living at work and home. It's still problematic not to keep going on eco-friendly way for all the lifestyles but with temporary or intermittent lightening action. I haven't had any opportunities to watch the film yet(not sure it has yet to be released in theaters here), but l hope to get to see the film officially. Even under the somewhat unpredictable current swings of temperatures even with its own fluctuation of atmosphere cycle, l am concerned about the real future of the earth connecting to our ongoing life. In the long-term persective, global warming has already been discussed and argued via mass media as the main cause of the cooling effect resulting in global cooling(Ice Age) with feasibility. Some argured global warming might help preventing cooling of the earth as absurd reasoning (they might be the supporters using or developing fossil fuel for industries like Trump?). You definitely won't agree with that. πŸ˜…πŸŒžπŸ’¨β„β›‡β˜ƒ l'm still reading the book, "Six Degrees" and gonna read the book thoroughly a few times bit by bit again not to miss important points. @robindeiana @aboutjulian @tyleroninsta @julianmother @loudforearth @przemyslawkrompiec @samy.rashad @niklas_klabunde @luckyinkorea @0zahid0 @alexmazzu @markxhj
