One of the best moments of my life. Getting to sort of start to begin to try and thank this hero. As messy and awful and stupid and ugly and violent and deadly and embarrassing and idiotic as things can sometimes feel- I'm still so proud to be part of a country that produces families and people like the Obamas. Thank you for making this a better country and making me a better person.
