Everytime Barack Obama’s done a recent public appearance, whether it’s helping Malia move into her Harvard dorm or him sending people love at a Chance The Rapper show in Chicago, we’re reminded how much we miss him in the Oval Office.
A newly released video is again bringing those feelings back up. The 44th President recently made a surprise visit to Washington, D.C.’s McKinley Tech High School and students were surprised, to say the least.
“Hey, how’s it going everybody?” he said as he entered a classroom of students meeting. “The chancellor told me you guys were meeting, so I thought I’d stop by. You don’t mind me crashing, right?”

The look on student’s faces and simultaneous gasps can only put the biggest grin on the face of anyone watching the video that captured the momentous occasion.
Subsequently, Obama kicked the classroom some game and revealed how young people are so important to our future.
“One of the things that I did throughout my presidency was I’d meet with groups of young people everywhere I went, whether it was here in the United States, or traveling overseas just to kind of hear from them, find out what they’re interested in,” he explained. “I do believe that most of the problems that we have are going to be solved by you.”
Barack later told a young woman, “Remember what I say: Don’t back down.”
No complaining to youngsters about his political opponents, no name-calling, just being a good person. That’s Barack. And we miss him.
