So Long President Obama

President Barack Obama, the even-keeled 44th President of the United States of America, said farewell to the nation last night in a speech from Chicago, Illinois, the place his civil activism and political career got started.

As has been his signature character throughout eight-years as Commander-in-Chief in the stress-inflicting White House, President Obama remained eloquent and poised as he reminded Americans to continue embracing liberty and freedom while working for the greater good of the Republic and for democracy. He affirmed the importance of "citizens" to the Republic as he also confirmed that science and reason do matter in effective good governance.

My wife and I quietly wept through the speech and under my wife's sniffles of "there goes a good man", I quickly reflected on how this giant of humanity, whose intelligence, reasonableness and respect of all people is equaled to none, has positively impacted so many lives across the globe, in just eight-years. 

On a personal note, it has been my honor and privilege to serve this President and humanity in the last eight-years. I will remain proud that Planet Earth got a chance to see a rational Black man serve as leader of the free world. I am especially privileged and grateful to have witnessed my two older sons attend Ivy League schools during this President's tenure and to watch my two younger sons grow with confidence as President Obama occupied the Oval Office. 

I am not one who readily accepts men as heroes, but Barack Obama is my hero and the hero of my family. I will not say goodbye to him, I'll simply say, so long...for as long as he has life, his service to humanity will never end, even outside of the White House. I am sure there will be many times in the future when special issues will demand the wisdom and the rational expression of the great 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. I salute you most learned President. May God continue to Bless you and your family. Thanks for your leadership.
