The President-Elect

The newly elected president and Hyde Park native will soon leave his quiet hood where he used to walk down the lake front every morning; chilling with his head phones and enjoying the peace of his surroundings.

I used to ride my bike every morning when I lived in Hyde Park and Barack and I shared plenty of conversations about the beauty of the lake front. I had no ideal this thin, bright eyed, and polite gentleman was destined for such greatness. If I had known, I would have shared in his walks instead of just passing by with a smile, hand shake and small talk about the weather.
