Barack Obama Made a Pilgrimage to Evangelist Billy Graham
MONTREAT, N.C. – The U.S. President Barack Obama recently made a pilgrimage Sunday to evangelist Billy Graham’s home. Despite of being a President, Barack Obama is also a good human being, who, at times, needs to pray for this great country, talk his heart out with someone old and wise and spend some time off to relieve his nerves.
He spent almost 30 to 40 minutes with Billy Graham and during that light hearted and cordial conversation, both of them talked about their connection to Chicago, Golf, College days and political career.
Franklin Graham (son of Billy Graham), later on, happily revealed that the President prayed for my father and my father prayed for him, the country, our brave soldiers and the people of America. In addition, President Obama was gifted two copies of bible, personally from Billy Graham. One was for Obama and the other copy was meant for Michele Obama.
Presidency is not a walk in some lavish garden because there are tons of moments when tough decisions have to be made – sacrifices, demands, humbleness and loneliness is all part of the Presidency game. Obama confided in Billy Graham about his inner thoughts and asked for wisdom, the courage and strength to make the right decisions for the American people.
Despite of being subject to constant ailing condition, Billy Graham managed to serve the U.S. President in the bestest form. It is just like as if he was ready for this small meeting and after it was regrettably over, Obama made his way to West Virginia to offer his condolences and express his views on the loss of those unfortunate 29 miners, who got killed in a coal mine explosion on April 5th.
