Fatherhood Quote

  • “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 knew that day that my own life wouldn’t count for much unless she had every opportunity in hers.” —Barack Obama
