“I think back to the day I drove Michelle and a 
newborn Malia home from the hospital nearly 13 years 
ago — crawling along, miles under the speed limit, feeling the weight of my daughter’s future resting in my hands. 
I think about the pledge I made to her that day: that I 
would give her what I never had — that if I could be 
anything in life, I would be a good father. I knew that daythat my own life wouldn’t count for much unless 
she had every opportunity in hers.” 

- Barack Obama
