“Pardon me are you Aaron Hamilton, Sir?”
“That depends who’s asking?”
“Oh well sure Sir, I’m Alexander Burr. I’m at your service, Sir. I have been looking for you.”

In which Aaron is the young immigrant and Alexander the heir to the Burr legacy.

some #looks from this season, y'all 🔮

Thank You President Obama!!!

Just over 8 years ago, while sitting in my apartment in Philadelphia, I watched as the race was called and Senator Barack Obama was elected President of the United States of America. This was the first presidential election that I was eligible to vote in, and it was for an African American.

For the last 8 years it has been a pleasure to see how President Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama, have elevated the office of president, and first lady. He has operated with dignity and grace, without personal scandal or indiscretion. First Lady Obama has been a role model for all young women, not just black women. I will gladly teach my two-year-old daughter about Michelle Obama as she grows up!

Each time I watched President Obama speak I felt a sense of pride. To see an African American occupy the highest office in the country, the most powerful position in the world, was a consist reminder of what is possible!

Now, 8 years later, we sit on the eve of a presidential election in which Barack Obama is not on the ballot. For many millennials, this is our first time voting for president without Barack Obama being a candidate.

In this, President Obama’s last day as the reigning winner of the most recent presidential election, I have mixed emotions. On one hand, I am grateful for the opportunity to witness history, greatness, and class. I am proud of President Obama and proud of First Lady Michelle Obama and their family.

On the other hand, I am saddened that his eight-year term is coming to a close.

President Obama has set the bar high. The next President will have a tough road ahead of him or her.

Regardless of your political views, we can all celebrate the tenure of President Obama and cherish the time we had under his leadership!

Thank You President Obama for teaching us all that we can rise about the attacks and keep moving forward.

Yes We Can!
