President Obama gave an optimistic and emotional presidential farewell speech in Chicago last night. Listeners react, share their memories of Obama and say their own goodbyes.

@BrianLehrer I worry that there is less and less empathy for one another. This lack of empathy will continue to hurt our democracy.— Zeldi (@tygera) January 11, 2017
