The Obama's for Essence Magazine


Essence Magazine salutes the end of the Obama era with a special October collectors issue hitting newsstands Friday, September 9th.

I will certainly hate to see these two amazing people leave the White House.  They were a breath of fresh air, and humanity, in this cold world that we live in.  See an excerpt from their interview with Essence below.
“…I can unequivocally say that America is better off now than we were when we came into office. By almost every economic measure, we’re better off,” President Obama said. “But having said that, we still have a lot of work to do.”
“I think when it comes to Black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them,” Mrs. Obama said. “It matters. All the future work that Barack talked about, I think over these last few years, we’ve kind of knocked the ceiling of limitation off the roofs of many young kids; imaginations of what’s possible for them. And as a mother, I wouldn’t underestimate how important that is, having that vision that you can really do anything—not because somebody told you, but because you’ve seen and experienced it. I think that will be a lasting impact on our kids.”
