The former President of USA recently shared a snippet of his memory with his mother in association with the release of his brand new literary work ‘A Promised Land’.
“As I recount in my book, A Promised Land, my mother, Ann Dunham, was strong, smart, and marched to her own beat. For her, the world offered endless opportunities for moral instruction. My sister Maya and I got early lessons about the struggle for civil rights, the impact of poverty on people around the world, and the importance of respecting other cultures and considering other points of view. My mother believed that power came not from putting people down but rather through lifting them up. And she was always certain that in the face of injustice and humanity’s more primal impulses, logic and progress would always prevail. “The world is complicated, Bar,” she used to say. “That’s why it’s interesting.”-posted Obama on his official Instagram page.
This was also followed by a vintage shaded photograph of Obama with his mother. Indeed a sweet childhood souvenir.
As a top-notch politician he has always mentioned about his mother, the unconventional and painful life she led to carve out his personality. He hasn’t hitherto failed to acknowledge the boon and blessings that she had showered upon him in his long journey towards success. Now he has literally penned down his wholehearted gratitude towards his mother through his upcoming memoir ‘A Promised Land’.
