President Obama Receives the 2017 JFK Profiles In Courage Award

Image result for Barack Obama JFK profiles in Courage speech
'I hope that current members of Congress recall that it actually doesn't take a lot of courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential - but it does require some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm.'
-President Barack Obama

Last night former president (sniff sniff) Barack Obama took a trip to Boston to make one of his first public speeches since 45 was inaugurated  on Sunday night to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum to accept the  JFK Profile in Courage Award.

And as you probably guessed, I was glued to the television for that one.

For those of you who missed it, here's the video of his speech.   It's so nice to see a POTUS that actually has an eloquent command of the English language.

I miss him in DC.
