The Time My Family Met Barack Obama

My father with Barack Obama
When I was a junior in high school, my entire family had the opportunity to meet Senator Barack Obama. A friend of the family was his lawyer, and hosted an event at their home as a sort of meet & greet. I turned the invite down, to stay at home and do homework, ie surf the web. I did not know that this man was going to be the next President of the United States. I did not know that this man would be the first African American President.

This is one of my biggest regrets in life. Occasionally, it’s good to unplug, leave the house, and meet people. You never know who’s out there or who they are going to become.

  1. I'm sorry you missed out on meeting the man, but this is a good fable for the rest of us.
