As president, I saw Chancellor Merkel lead through crises with her wise pragmatism, good humor, and unrelenting moral compass—and I feel lucky to call her a friend. Grateful for the chance to visit the Smithsonian NMAAHC today, a reminder that America is a constant work in progress.

When I arrived at the White House on the morning of June 26, 2015, I didn’t know it would be a day for the history books. But by evening’s end I had the chance to witness one of the most extraordinary days of President Barack Obama's eight years in office. Let me tell you why.

Michelle and I started the The Obama Foundation's Futures Series to connect the young leaders of tomorrow with the trailblazers of today. It’s great to see the impact that it’s already having on students from the South Side.

Barack and I always want to make sure that young people feel confident and capable of making a difference. 
 
That's one of the reasons we created the Futures Series at the The Obama Foundation, so students on the South Side understand there is no dream too big for them to dream.

We have a responsibility to the young people of the neighborhood. That's why we launched our Futures Series at Hyde Park Academy, the high school that neighbors the future Obama Presidential Center, to expose students to careers they may not have been envisioning for themselves.

Great news for parents: The COVID-19 vaccine is approved for kids under 5. As appointments ramp up, you’ll be able to find a vaccine at pediatricians’ offices, pharmacies, and more. It's safe and effective—this is another big step to protect our loved ones and communities.
