The death of Bin Laden was welcomed all across the world. World leaders and organizations such as the United Nations praised the work of Barack Obama in seeing to it that Bin Laden’s reign of terror was brought to an end.

    Obama was truly one of the best Presidents ever. We, the middle-class people really appreciated the communication and time he gave to educate and simplify topics; also, what we did not understand when crisis and troublesome occurrences occurred within our states and especially the economically.
    Fact: The Great Recession of 2008 to 2009 was the worst economic downturn in the U.S. since the Great Depression. He advised us our economy would turn around and it would not happen quickly. It would take time. His honesty was a breath of air. We are not perfect.
    Instead of sensationalism, he spoke the truth based on fact. If he was mistaken, he would communicate that as well. He was great example of helping people get along even if they don’t agree. No profanity and no hostility. This is often missed in some of the speakers today. It is disturbing to have seen January 6, 2001, and the disruption of transference of power to the next President. No matter Democratic or Republican, it should not have happened. Hopefully, as time progresses our Democracy will remain intact.
