it was amazing

I needed this. America- we NEED THIS.

To Obama is a series of letters that Laskas picked to represent the social and political challenges Obama dealt with during his eight year term as POTUS. The letters come from a diverse representation of constitutes and range in tone from love, anger, grief, etc., for readers to really understand the depth and scope of issues that Obama handled with compassion, dignity, and intellect as sitting President.

Laskas has a soft, yet analytical tone in her narrative as she describes meeting with the individuals that wrote each letter and what compelled them to share their personal stories and struggles with Obama.

For me, over the last two years so much of my days are spent just trying to survive, to fight, stand up against the injustice the Trump Administration is working overtime to deal out. Laskas new release is a reminder to me not to burn out and become compliant, that what I'm fighting for matters and it begins by telling our stories
