The former President of the USA, Barak Obama, has explained the reason why he is dedicating his memoir, “A Promised Land” to his wife and two children.
He said, “The fact that my own father was largely absent from my childhood helped shape my ideas about the kind of father I intended to be.
When Malia was born, I made a promise to myself that my kids would know me, that they’d grow up feeling my love keenly and consistently, knowing that I’d always put them first.
While serving as President, I made sure to have dinner with Michelle, Sasha, and Malia every evening by 6:30. We’d eat some good meals and catch up on our days. That was one of the best parts of living above the store, as I sometimes called it.
Seeing them grow up into the intelligent, strong, and compassionate young women they’ve become has been the greatest joy of my life.
I’m reminded constantly that there’s no place in the world I’d rather be than with Miche and our girls––and it’s why I’ve dedicated my memoir to them. #APromisedLand”
A Promised Land is a forthcoming memoir by Barack Obama. It is due to be published on November 17, 2020. It is the first of a planned two volumes that Obama has written following his tenure as President of the United States from 2009 to 2017.
Obama said in a tweet following the announcement of the publication of the book that he has aimed to “provide an honest accounting of my presidency, the forces we grapple with as a nation, and how we can heal our divisions and make democracy work for everybody”.
