"Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion," Obama said. "You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad."

At the close of his speech, his family joined him on stage and waved to the crowds, but we did not fail to notice that one member of the family was missing. Where was Sasha Obama? That was the question on Americans' minds Tuesday evening as President Barack Obama delivered a teary farewell address in Chicago.

According to a White House official's statement to the Washington Post, Sasha was in Washington studying for an exam scheduled for Wednesday morning.
