'From The Obama Family To Yours' - The Former US President Wishes The Public A Happy Thanksgiving Day
This is the first Thanksgiving in eight years that the Obamas would not be spending in the White House. However, the former president made it clear that he had not forgotten the US citizens. His recent social media message was proof that even though he was no longer the US president, he wished people nothing but the best during the holidays.
His Thanksgiving message
The Obamas recently shared a wholesome family photo along with a message to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. The picture was posted on Barack Obama's Twitter page, and his followers were quick to wish him the same.

While he was in the White House, Barack Obama often spent Thanksgiving volunteering at soup kitchens and feeding the homeless. Since leaving the seat, he has not let up on helping out where he could or sharing uplifting messages.
A word for the war veterans
On November 11th, 2017, Obama had an inspiring message in honor of Veteran's day. In the post, he explained that he visited a service project in Northeast D.C. and was inspired by the war veterans who were working on building a public housing project.
"On a day dedicated to honoring their sacrifice, these veterans chose to honor their fellow citizens," he said in the post.
As he expressed his respect for the men and women in the armed forces, he urged others to do what they can to serve the country.
We can practice kindness. We can volunteer. We can serve. We can respect one another. We can have each other’s backs. We can ask, “Now, what else can I do?”
Michelle Obama's words of wisdom
It's not just Barack Obama that has been finding ways to uplift and motivate Americans. His wife has also been doing her part to spread happiness and show support.
A week ago, the former first lady was at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts and shared some advice on how people should face adversity.
Focus on what you can control. Be a good person every day. Vote. Read. Treat one another kindly. Follow the law.
It's safe to say that the Obamas left quite the impression on Americans, so people often ask if Michelle Obama herself may consider running for office. While the former first family does not say much on that subject, it's good to know that they still have the country's back and are always happy to serve.
