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, 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 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.
