President Obama’s Farewell Address … watch it here!
SADLY: ‘On January 20, 2017, President Obama will pass the baton to president-elect Donald Trump.’

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

“Democracy does not require uniformity. Our founders quarreled and compromised, and expected us to do the same. But they knew that democracy does require a basic sense of solidarity — the idea that for all our outward differences, we are all in this together; that we rise or fall as one.”  President Obama in his farewell address.

On January 20, 2017, President Obama will pass the baton to president-elect Donald Trump.

president-obama-farewellAs this nation’s first Black President, it was anticipated that Obama would address race issues in America.  Some were pleased when he did, and others criticized him and accused him of causing a racial divide.  In his farewell address, President Obama hit the proverbial nail on the head when saying, “Laws alone won’t be enough.  Hearts must change.”

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
