Today marks the end of an era, not only for America but for my life and the lives of my fellow millennials. Barack Obama was the first president I was eligible to vote for and he is the singular reason I began to care about politics. I feel it’s prudent to pay respect to a man who has held the highest office in the land with so much integrity and grace these past eight years. He now leaves behind a legacy untarnished by scandal or major controversy. Policy differences aside, let’s stop and appreciate his service to this country.
Thank you, Mr. President.
