Over the last week, I had the privilege of standing in lines for over 8 hours because a certain someone visited LFK. That certain someone happened to be the leader of the free world and hands down the most powerful man in the world.

President Barack Obama gave his State of the Union Speech on Tuesday in D.C. and I got a chance to see him reiterate his points on Thursday. Although the POTUS and I don’t agree on everything, the experience was by far one of the coolest things to ever happen to me. Not to mention, the President used the softball locker room to hang out in before his speech. Secret Service suggested we write him notes and much to our pleasant surprise, he signed them all.

I wasn’t selected as one of the chosen students to sit and be honored behind the president or volunteer at the event but I was maybe 30 feet in front of President Obama and enjoyed every minute of the time I spent this week. It was well worth the wait.
