Former President of the United States of America, Barrack Obama remembers 15years ago when he and his beautiful wife, stood in front of the Old Capitol to announce his candidacy for President.
Barrack Obama vividly remembers clearly in 2007 when he announced his bid to become President on the ticket of the Democratic Party.
“it’s hard to believe that 15years have passed since i stoop in front of the Old Capitol in Springfield, Illinois and announced my candidacy for President” the former President posted on social media.
The former President also gives account why he moved forward and became the first Black President of the United States. Barrack Obama became more popular after the world knew him as the first Black man to occupy the White House
“what gave me the confidence to move forward in spite of the odds were the people I met, including the people who came out to see us in Springfield. They didn’t stand in the cold for hours just for me. They did it because they believed in what this country could be, and that we could change it for the better” Obama said.
The former President also recounted the problems the world faced during his tenure and compared it to present times.
“Today, our challenges are as great as any we faced 15years ago from disinformation that is undermining faith in our Democratic institutions, to the growing effects of climate change, to lingering pandemic. But my faith in what we can achieve when we work together is as strong as ever”
