Happy New Year, Mr. President. This is for you.

Hi Guys,

I’ve been doing this – whatever it is that I do ;) – for two years now. Never ever, I was more proud, happy and moved by any post,  like the very long one you’re about to enter – And I didn’t even had to do anything but copy and paste.

Right under the cut you’ll find what is – despite its length – really just a sample from literally hundreds of comments that somehow were gathered on every corner of I’m Grateful post. Some comments were edited because they were too long, but overall I left them exactly as they were posted, typos, caps lock and what not. The order is random, except for the choice of the last post. Visual breaks provided by the marvelous Pete Souza and the rest of the WH official photographers (mouse-over for Pete’s description of every photo). 

Usually I would not dream to hope that President Obama will even hear about this collection – let alone read some of these comments – but after all that happened with “I’m Grateful” in just one month – I may just start believe in miracles. Make yourself a nice cup of coffee (or two), and just enjoy. We are not alone. And neither is the president.

Happy New Year, everybody.
