President Barack Obama Shares Some Cheer For The New Year
December 29, 2017

Former President Barack Obama's indefatigable optimism spilled onto Twitter today. As we close out this year and try not to suffer from too much anxiety next year, I thought the thread was worth sharing.

With so much focus on the negative, it's a nice break to hear positive stories.

I hope 2018 brings us all more positive than the negative.

Can you help us out?
