You are looking at a photo of Bossy and her husband and son taken during Columbia’s Family Weekend in New York City.
No you’re not—but you are looking at a photo of Barack O’Boyfriend with the grandparents who raised him, taken during Columbia’s Family Weekend in New York City.
Bossy is completely enamored with these two, a certain Madelyn and Stanley Dunham from Kansas. Barack lived with his grandparents from the age of ten, and he credits them with instilling values straight from their Midwestern roots—things like “accountability and self-reliance. Love of country. Working hard without making excuses. Treating your neighbor as you’d like to be treated.”
Barack’s grandfather died in 1992, and his grandmother, who he nicknamed Toot, is now 86-years-old and ailing—and today Barack suspended his campaign in order to be with her.
Which brings Bossy to today’s Ten-Word Challenge. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy about one of your beloved grandparents?
