Whether it was schooling people in basketball or making universal heath care available for every American, you always appeared to still be a human being.
Thank you for your respect for all
Even when you didn't receive it back. Although our country is not equal, you serve as a leader in the possibility that one day we will be. Your administration pushed the United States closer to being a true place of freedom. Despite venom being spewed your way from the average critic to even public figures, your grace and eloquence proves that respect and kindness will always prevail over hatred. Thank you for showing the potential in Americans to strive towards equality, you've put us on that path.
Thank you for you for hearing and listening
Despite the fact there are over 300 million Americans, you and your staff do hear us. Thank you for answering my father's letter to you when he thanked you for advocating for veteran's rights and bringing attention to homelessness. It meant the world to my dad and helped me realize that our government is the government of the people.
Thank you for being my President
I was 11 when you first were elected president of the United States. I've since become a legal adult, graduated high school, and started college. You've been a role model for me throughout my adolescence and have helped me realize my interest in politics. Thank you for inspiring generations of young people to join politics no matter who they are or where they come from. Even as an awkward 11 year old, you made me feel as though I could do something one day.
