Barack Obama Preparing for First Public Appearance

The Obamas are well-rested following a relaxing vacation to the islands. Now it’s back to business for the high profile couple. Barack Obama is preparing for his first public appearance since leaving office and we can’t wait. Where will he appear you ask?

Barack Obama will accept the Centennial John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. This spring, Obama will be rewarded for a career of “grace under pressure” and “exceptional dignity and courage,” Buzzfeed reports.

Obama will receive the honor during the special 100th anniversary of Kennedy’s birth. Obama will only be the third president to receive the award. Barack Obama will be awarded for an “entire life that was really a testament to courage,” said Bloomberg View columnist Al Hunt.

At the May 7 event Mr. Obama will deliver a speech at Boston’s John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum.
