President Obama Serves Others on Thanksgiving


As most of us went about our traditional Thanksgiving with family and friends, the President of the United States and his family visited a local homeless shelter to serve food to homeless individuals and veterans. I think this is pretty cool – arguably the most powerful person in the world was serving others. That’s a pretty powerful metaphor and a great example for all of us to follow.

As I watch this video, I am reminded that we are all human beings. Some deliver the mail, some teach at a school, some sell cars and some our presidents of countries. Regardless of the job title, we all put our pants on one leg at a time. I applaud the president for giving up some of his holiday to help those in need. I think this sets a great example for all of us. As a father, I think he is teaching his children kindness, humility and service. We should all be so willing to teach our children such important traits.
