On the eve of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration, Barack Obama took to Facebook to share his parting letter as the 44th US president.

In the letter he expressed gratitude, thanking the American people for making him a better president and a better man. Between giving a small shout-out to hopeful young grads and praising universal health care, Obama also recalled certain sentimental moments that had an impact on him during his presidency. Among them he cited visiting a grief-stricken Charleston, South Carolina, church and watching scientists help wounded war heroes walk again.

He ended it on a hopeful note, reminding everyone that he'll still be around, and shared a link for anyone interested in keeping in touch with his work post-presidency.
