One sunny day in February, 2017, an old man approaches the White House
from across Pennsylvania Avenue where he’d been sitting on a park bench.

He speaks to the U.S. Marine standing guard and says, “I would like to
go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine looks at the man and says, “Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer
President and no longer resides here.

”The old man says, “Okay,” and walks away.

The following day the same man approaches the White House and says to
the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Obama.”

The Marine again tells the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama
is no longer President and no longer resides here.” The man thanks him
and again just walks away.

The third day the same man approaches the White House and speaks to
the very same U.S. Marine, saying, “I would like to go in and meet
with President Obama.”

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looks at the man
and says, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here
asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I’ve told you already that Mr. Obama
is no longer the President and no longer resides here. Don’t you
understand?”

The old man looks at the Marine and says, “Son, I understand just
fine. I just love hearing it.”

The Marine smiles at the man then snaps to attention, salutes
smartly, and says:
“Very good, Sir. See you tomorrow, Sir! Enjoy your day, Sir.”
