For eight years of leading us with dignity, integrity, and intelligence to a point in history where a record number of Americans have jobs, health insurance, and a sense of inclusion in the promise of the American dream.

President Obama, I am one of countless Americans who feels blessed to have lived during your tenure. Thank you for keeping us safe and moving us forward.

As you leave office, may you feel our gratitude for your service.

God bless us all.
