    Thank you Chipsticks. I’d recognize those hands anywhere. Beautiful hands. Actually our First Couple both have beautiful hands.

      Beautiful hands, both Barack and Michelle. Good hands. I am so grateful that we are in their hands.

      And may God hold us all in his hands.

    I have tears in my eyes and I don’t know if it’s the music or the pictures or a combination of both, but this is a great video.

    Thank you for a beautiful tribute. Next year we should gather and march either on his birthday ( 8/4) or Presidents Day for our President in cities around the country.

      A nation wide march would be awesome…we tend to see marches when there is opposition…I’ve often thought it would be great to have an all inclusive Pro rally. Pro Obama, Pro Government, Pro Choice, Pro Labor, Pro Education, Pro Immigration …positivity.

    What a relaxing break, Chipsticks, thank you. I’ve been working for almost 12 hours on a first draft. I’m almost cross-eyed, and right now I never want to see another peony as long as I live, (A good night’s sleep and I’ll be over it, though!)

    Ah, Chipsticks. You keep making me cry, girl. Our Prez is always thinking; always working. I’m not ashamed to say I just love him. And when you see the love on the faces of the folks who just want to shake his hand, you know I’m not alone. We really should have a march in his honor. A million person march to show our love would be awesome and make the tea party right wing heads explode. Let’s do it, please.

    Happy Presidents’ Day to all of the greats, and I believe and trust that this president will go down in history as one of the greatest. Thanks for these memories. Just think those little ones sitting down on the floor looking up at this president will be living their lives by the wonderful decisions that this President will make for their future. We must give him due respect, and have his back because he needs our support. Thanks for this.

    Chipsticks – Thank you for so much. When I see that picture of the President going up the steps of Air Force One, I think of how much weight he’s carrying. AND how extremely capable he is in carrying that weight.

    dear chipsticks,
    so well done! i love the combination of images.

    any chance you could make this 4 times as long with more pics? 😉 it is so soothing and calming. i just keep hitting replay! 😉

    • February 22, 2011 at 9:59 am

      Thrilled you like it M, I’ve always loved the music and thought it fit nicely with the beautiful photos of Pete Souza. I’ll work on something longer, promise!

    It’s President Obama’s beautiful hands and the extraordinary gestures he makes every day that really speak so much about his character. Thanks very much for all your talents, Chipsticks.

    • February 22, 2011 at 10:36 am

      Ah, thank you Meta! I could be wrong, but I don’t think these photo videos would have worked too well with President….. McCain 😕

        President McCain, hell no, the photo videos wouldnt have worked with McCain. Oh boy, dont even want to think of a president Mccain with his vp, bitter falling palin.

        • February 22, 2011 at 11:44 am

          Just kiddin’ Asher, can you imagine anything more awful than a McCain photo montage!!

            That would be one massive fail! I can always tell when McCain is lying. He clinches his jaw, his eyes begin to wander to the side, and he starts saying “My friend” to respond to a question he doesn’t like having to answer. Just think of a video of McCain showing him in action. Most folks would be focused on watching his eyes wander, see him clinch his jaws, and hearing him say “My friend.” LOL I know I’m being bad, but I’m also telling the truth!
