What a difference there has been between President Barack Obama and the man currently sitting in the Oval Office. Obama’s message was and is still a message of hope. If each one of us does even one small thing, even if we can see no immediate results, good will triumph. Look what 44 just did.
President Obama tweeted a reminder of Bobby Kennedy, brother of President John F. Kennedy. The 44th president quoted the former president’s brother and his attorney general saying we have a “million different centers of energy and daring:”
‘Bobby Kennedy was one of my heroes. He was someone who showed us the power of acting on our ideals, the idea that any of us can be one of the “million different centers of energy and daring” that ultimately combine to change the world for the better.’
The president we miss was reminding us that by our votes, we can change the Titanic ship called the Donald Trump administration. It has been easy to become discouraged in these days.
It appears that each day brings another batch of horrific news about the current commander-in-chief’s acts. Yet, as President Obama said, together we can “change the world for better.”
People responded to President Obama’s tweet with their own tweets. One in particular showed the sitting POTUS saying “That White House is a a real dump” in 2017. Beneath that disgraceful quote, was another. This one from President Obama:
‘In the evening when Michelle and the girls have gone to bed, I sometimes walk down the hall to a room Abraham Lincoln used as his office. It contains an original copy of the Gettysburg address, written in Lincoln’s own hand.”
