Father's Day-- Part 2

Barry and his father Barack

Four years too late, I am now finally reading Obama's autobiography Dreams from My Father.  During the 2008 election, every self-respecting Democrat read this book.

I'm about 50 pages in and I am beyond impressed.  It is brutally honest and candid.  The struggles of being raised in a broken home, the questions about one's biracial identity, and so much more are explored and analyzed.  There are no easy solutions and when a solution exists, it's not always neat and pretty.

It is truly incredible and heartwarming to know that this man, with such a unique and universal background, is the President of the United States, right now, today.

Here is Obama in 1995 being interviewed for the book.
