BARACK OBAMA SAYS DROPPING MALIA OFF AT COLLEGE WAS LIKE ‘OPEN-HEART SURGERY’
Thursday, Sep 28, 2017

Presidency may be hard, but sending your daughter to college is harder!

Barack Obama gave a speech for the Beau Biden Foundation for the Protection of Children, a foundation in honor of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son who died of brain cancer. During his speech, he opened up about what dropping off Malia Obama at Harvard University was like:

“For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast. I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery, and I was proud that I did not cry in front of her. But on the way back, the Secret Service was all looking straight ahead pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough.”

He continued to reflect on how fatherhood has shaped him.

“At the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the thing that we’ll remember are the joys that our children — and hopefully, way later, our grandchildren — bring us and holding their hand, swinging them on a swing, listening to them talk about what had happened in school; simple stuff, but ultimately that’s what matters.”

And now we’re crying! How much do you miss the Obamas?
