"My Obama Moment"

Watch the heart-breaking beauty of these tributes to President Barack Obama:

He is such a good human being: kind, funny, humble.

He may go down in history as one of our greatest presidents.

Yes, he made some mistakes: 

  • use of drones that killed innocent civilians
  • drawing a line in Syria and then changing his mind
  • deporting so many immigrants

But he always tried to do the right thing.  His speeches and comments on national and international events and on his policies were judicious.

The people in this collection of videos answer the question, "What was your Obama moment?"

The answers are varied but always moving.  I was moved to tears.

I can't even bear to think what will follow.
