Vice President Biden awarded Medal of Freedom from President Obama

President Barack Obama surprised an emotional Vice President Joe Biden with the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday.

“For your faith in your fellow Americans, for your love of country and for your lifetime of service that will endure through the generations, I’d like to ask the military aide to join us on stage,” Obama said during the ceremony. “For my final time as President, I am pleased to award our nation’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.”

The Obama Family Releases Final White House Christmas Card


The First Family of the United States has gotten some of their citizens teary-eyed once again, with debuting their Christmas card for 2016.

This year’s card from President Obama and family is bittersweet because this is their final holiday card before leaving the White House next month.

“As our family reflects on our many happy years spent in the White House, we are grateful for the friends we’ve made, the joy we’ve shared, and the gifts of kindness we’ve received,” the message inside the card reads. “We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season and a wonderful new year.”

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are handsome and beautiful as always, respectively.

However, we can’t help but notice their daughters, Malia and Sasha. They look so elegant standing besides their parents. It goes to show how these past eight years have flown by – they were little girls when President Obama was first elected, and now they are beautiful and mature young women.

Speaking for myself, but I’m sure others will agree, I will miss the Obamas come January. The are such a beautiful family.


Thank you President Obama


I am really going to miss Barack Obama as our president. He faced a lot of racism and criticism during the past eight years. Despite all of his challenges, he did not let any of that phase him for getting his job done and do what he needed to do for his country, our country, and he did a lot for us.

I’m going to miss him with his family: First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha. Despite their busy schedules, the President and First Lady raised two young girls into beautiful young women and were active in their children’s lives, which is what parents are supposed to do. They are a very close family with lots of love for one another… role models for what families should be like.

I can’t picture anyone else being president and I wish that he could always be president. I am so grateful that we had a man like President Obama who served our country with dignity, class, determination, humor and love, and cared for the well-being of its citizens.

Thank you Barack Obama, for being our president… my president… of the United States of America.
