Dear Joe

By Emma Borrow

Dear Joe,

In the wake of the most recent Presidential Inauguration, I would like to express my endless appreciation for all that you have done for our country over the past 8 years. In an effort to show my appreciation, I would like to proffer the readership of Retrospect with the top 5 reasons to be obsessed with you.

  1. You oversaw the $840 billion stimulus package as a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, helping to rebuild our economy and prepare for a sustainable economic future.
  2. You led the Ready to Work Initiative, in an effort to help our administration identify opportunities to create a workforce with better skills, preparing American workers for the jobs of the 21st century.
  3. You have always been a supporter of women’s rights and a longtime advocate against sexual assault and domestic violence. As students of Hathaway Brown School for girls, my classmates and I were incredibly excited when you were appointed the first-ever White House Advisor on Violence Against Women.
  4. You have also raised the living standards of the middle class through your role as the chair of the Middle Class Task Force.
  5. Your memes have brought me personal comic relief throughout the past 6 months. I will honestly never stop loving these memes, and I, along with many others, will definitely not forget them as we adjust to the Trump Administration.
  6. Lastly, your incredible relationship with Former President Barack Obama is inspiring. I hope that one day I am a part of such a wonderful (and meme-worthy) friendship! 


Hope you enjoy this video as much as I did!
