Reactions to throwback photo of the Obamas
The photo of Barack Obama's very humble apartment with his Michelle and his children has started a conversation about growing from grass to grace.
Shared by a man, Elphas Saizi, on LinkedIn, he said the picture should be a source of motivation to people going through difficult times presently.
Saizi added that if Obama could go on to become American's president despite all, then anything is just possible.
