We. Miss. Obama.

It's been close to three years since we last had President Obama in the White House.

And it seems like we don't see him around much anymore, in these days when we could so desperately use a helping, guiding force.


So imagine the joy that the Washington Nationals Youth Academy kids experienced when they saw the 44th President show up to their program.

"It's Barack Obama!" one kid screamed in joy as he did laps around the crowd gathered around the former President, whom we all miss so terribly.

"I think everybody here—if you guys work hard, work hard in school, listen to your coaches—you guys are gonna do great things. So, I'm gonna be on the lookout for ya because I think you're gonna do something important. You guys are gonna make a real difference and we're gonna be really proud of you," Obama told the kids.




The President later took to Twitter to talk about the fun he had and to promote the work of Nats Youth.

Man, we really miss him.





The President and his family still live in Washington DC and keep busy in visiting nearby programs, including McKinley Tech High School, the Langston Terrace community, the Jelleff Boys & Girls Club, Dog Tag Bakery, and Children's National Hospital.





COME BACK.

We're sorry, we'll stop.

But really.

Please?

You've probably stayed up late watching some television special about a criminal in your area and seen the announcement near the end: "If you have any information, call our tipline." The authorities might even offer a reward of some kind. But what are the chances that you might actually know of the person they're looking for?

People shared their stories after Redditor Renzot56 asked the online community,

"Has anyone here ever actually called into one of the FBI rewards for information on criminals and won the money?"

Often, high school is where students become rebellious. They're learning about themselves, they're testing boundaries, and they realizing that they can break the rules and sometimes get away with it.

Sometimes they're doing it to mess with a teacher who's treating students unfairly, sometimes they're doing it because they're standing up for the very little autonomy we afford kids in the first place.

Redditor CloudWoww wanted to know about those moments that are unforgettable defiance of authority.
