White House Releases Most Captivating Photos Of President Barack Obama From 2015

Happy new year, BOSSIP fam!

2015 was an extraordinary year for our President, Barack Obama. He had to deal with a maddening number of public shootings, a failing healthcare system, civil rights issues and all while trying to find ways to keep Americans employed.

The POTUS shared some thoughts with us about his most eventful year via Facebook:

Happy New Year, everybody! There’s a lot I’m grateful for over this past year: Businesses that continued an all-time record streak of job creation; a health care system that covers more than 90 percent of us for the first time; a country where all our marriages are equal under the law for the first time; a world united around a prosperous, low-carbon future for the first time. But mostly, I’m grateful for you, and to be your President – because it’s your hard work, determination, and fundamental decency that led us forward through 2015, and that will keep leading us forward in 2016. Because of you, as long as I’ve had the privilege to serve in this office, I’ve never been more optimistic for a year ahead. So here’s my resolution: to do everything I can, with every day I have left, partnering with as many of you as possible, to keep making the promise of this country a reality for all of us.

White House photographer Pete Souza and his staff have released some very poignant photographs of the President that were taken over the course of last year that show the commander-in-chief in his role as leader, father, friend, gentleman and vulnerable human being.
