Five years ago today was a day I’ll never forget. After decades of protest, and organizing, and the determination of so many to never give up, the Supreme Court declared marriage equality a reality in America. As I made some comments in the Rose Garden, I looked at so many young members of my staff, and I noticed that they and all the people I saw on TV gathered on the steps of the Supreme Court shared the same expression on their faces: joy.⁣⁣

Later that day, Michelle and I went to Charleston to remember the nine Black Americans who were murdered at Mother Emanuel church, and to reflect on the grace that community showed––and what it might mean if more of us found the courage to do the same. And as night fell at the White House, a spontaneous celebration popped up in Lafayette Park––a fitting end to a momentous week.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
It was a week of progress––of real reflection on the painful symbols of our past and continuing injustices today, in the battle for the right to health care, and in the struggle for full equality for every single American. A week of moments that should sustain us in our longer journey to make this country we love more perfect––and convince us that we can.

Barack Obama Life

Barack Hussein Obama II (born August 4, 1961) is an American politician who served as the 44th President of the United States from January 20, 2009, to January 20, 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, he was the first African American to assume the presidency and previously served as a United States Senator from Illinois (2005–2008).

Obama was born in 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii, two years after the territory was admitted to the Union as the 50th state. Raised largely in Hawaii, he also spent one year of his childhood in the State of Washington and four years in Indonesia. After graduating from Columbia University in 1983, he worked as a community organizer in Chicago. In 1988, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduating, he became a civil rights attorney and a professor, teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He represented the 13th district for three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, when he ran for the U.S. Senate. He received national attention in 2004 with his March primary win, his well-received July Democratic National Convention keynote address, and his landslide November election to the Senate. In 2008, he was nominated for president a year after his campaign began and after a close primary campaign against Hillary Clinton. He was elected over Republican John McCain and was inaugurated on January 20, 2009. Nine months later, he was named the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, accepting the award with the caveat that he felt there were others "far more deserving of this honor than I".
