The world is aflame with war and pestilence. The nation’s borders are dissolving. Our ancient and implacable enemies are ascendant in every quarter.
Yesterday I received this email from OFA, Barack Obama’s Ministry of Propaganda:
Here’s something you might not know about President Obama: The man really loves pie.
And for as long as I’ve been filming with him, he always asks about the pie selection wherever we are. (He seems to prefer sweet potato and pecan, for what it’s worth.)
So, if I were on cake duty for President Obama’s birthday, I would skip the cake altogether and get some pie.
This year, OFA is doing something different for the President’s birthday — pick out the card that calls out to you, then sign your name.
I’ve been shooting video for a long time, and I’ve been very lucky to spend a good amount of time with President Obama over the years. He’s funny, gracious, kind, and — maybe most of all — appreciative.
He takes time to thank every single person, from the head honcho to the intern who is running errands — he cares about people.
So, I think this is the perfect time to celebrate him, and thank him for everything he’s done — from inspiring a movement of millions, to taking time to shake a hand or give a hug.
Take a moment to send well wishes to President Obama — pick your favorite card, then add your name to wish him a happy birthday:

Let’s sing him a song, too.
