"Have I told you lately how wonderful you are?
How the sound of your feet
running from afar
brings dancing rhythms to my day?
How you laugh
and sunshine spills into the room?" -Of Thee I Sing by Barack Obama
Have you seen President Obama's Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters?

Chronicling American thinkers, artists, leaders, and dreamers, he encourages his daughters that they too, have great possibility in themselves.
