President Barack Obama is preapring to leave the White House in less than 24 hours and as one of his last gestures, he penned a final letter to Americans expressing his gratitude and offering words of encouragement.   

“I wanted to say one final thank you for the honor of serving as your 44th," President Obama wrote. "All that I’ve learned in my time in office, I’ve learned from you.”

Echoing his thoughts from the final White House press conference this week, he sent the American people uplifting words to reflect on.

“All of us, regardless of party, should throw ourselves into that work – the joyous work of citizenship. Not just when there’s an election… but over the full span of a lifetime,” he added.

As the nation's first African-American President and arguably the best to ever step foot in the Oval Office, President Obama will truly be missed.
