“Comparing it to having an open heart surgery,” Obama said amid a seminar facilitated by the Beau Biden Foundation.
“For those of us who have little girls, it simply happens quick. I dropped off Malia at school, and I was stating to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a tiny bit like open-heart surgery,”
“I was proud that I did not cry in front of her,” Obama continued, “But on the way back, the Secret Service was off, looking straight ahead, pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough.”
“It’s a reminder that, at the end of our lives, whatever else we’ve accomplished, the things that we’ll remember are the joys that our children — and hopefully way later, our grandchildren — bring us,” said the 44th President.
Barack Obama and his wife Michelle both attended the prestigious Harvard University. Their youngest daughter Sasha who’s 16 years old is still in high school.
