Farewell to President
Obama and Michelle

~  by Maxine Session

      Happy New Year! Can you believe 2017 is here! Well, don’t just stand there. It’s time to get started on that long list of things you have to get done. Just kidding. Stop and smell the roses first. If you have not seen a good movie lately, then go see “Fences” with Denzel Washington and Viola Davis. It came out Christmas day. Our family went to see it after church and our Christmas celebration.  It provokes deep thought, so be ready if you decide to see it.  Dr. King’s 88th birthday will be celebrated on the 16th. There have been so many changes since his April 4, 1968 assassination. We are about to watch the first African American President, President Barack Obama end his second term in the Whitehouse.

We have great-grand children now and looking at the Texas history books used in the schools lets me know that we must continue to teach black history in our homes and churches, because nobody can tell our story like we can.

 

     Our little  ones are very young, but we make children’s books available to them and movies like “Selma”, and the series on Dr. King and use them as teaching tools. The movie “Hidden Figures” will be released soon and is a great one to teach the children the importance of math.

     As President Obama and Michelle welcome the new President Donald Trump on January 20th, and leave the Whitehouse, we can be proud that they have done a superb job despite working eight years with a Congress that vowed to work against him. It will be interesting to see what history records about President Obama, one of the greatest presidents to ever grace the Whitehouse.

     It looks like we, the USA, will be in for a rough ride the next four years with this new president. He and First Lady Michelle will be missed.
