    The one little girl with her eyes wide and mouth open brought to mind Picasso’s “Scream” for me.

        Donna, during the campaign, I watched every speech Barack gave. I made sure to schedule meetings and personal activity around his schedule ( 🙂 ). I loved it when he got to the end, recounted the “Fired Up” story, and ended with: “if one voice can change a room, it can change a city. And if it can change a city, it can change a state. And if it can change a state, it can change a country. And if it can change a country, it can change the world. Your voice can change the world. Let’s go change the world.” Wow! I got goosebumps EVERY SINGLE TIME. I’ll never forget those words. Never. Those words inspired me to get involved in the world around me. They’ll keep me inspired always.

      Donna, if it’s possible to have a “favorite”, this would be mine also. Those moments when we see President Obama at his most tender, are the times for me when his enormous strength seem so abundantly clear. This man has the heart of a lion.

    I love to see photos of people’s reactions to our President – especially children. In his smile, they see unconditional acceptance. In his eyes, they see hope and endless possibilities for their own future. And, you can see from their expressions and body language, that they reciprocate all that back to POTUS. The interaction between him and his audiences is almost karmic. I love to watch it.
