Beautiful. I hope the President's initiative will move forward in non-nuclear resolutions and not take steps backward amidst the upcoming elections...

Good evening and thank you for this article - which i read and noted- it was a lovely tribute -and they were well made - he must have practiced. I know there are some AMERICANS that did not want him to go-- I , myself am very happy he went - he may be the first - the only -and the last PRESIDENT ever able to go -if trump gets in - trump will undo all of the peace agreements we have with our friends - and trump will arm our enemies with nukes -so there will never be peace again- please go vote in NOVEMBER and pick a candidate that will keep us from getting into world war 3 -- take all your family and friends -so we may preserve our freedom and independence - and never go to war ever again- sincerely KAY M.
