    Pete Souza…genuis.

    President Obama a blessing from God.

    Tears and goosebumps…and the need to really feel this deeply.

    Chipsticks, you are simply beautiful.

    This amazing. It makes me teary and melancholy. You creation of this beautiful man with an amazing score brings a flood of memories. It is a little hard to be up when all of the haters, I am talking about the frustrati, try to destroy our president, but this eases the pain. Thanks Chipsticks.

    Thank you Chipsticks. This was SO beautiful! I too, got teary and emotional watching this and listening to the haunting melody. I am so thankful for President Obama. I worry about him with so many psychos out there that want to do him harm. I pray that he is always safe. He tries to be available to the public. (shaking hands, and hugs on occasion) I just hope the secret service is focused and can keep him safe.

    Than you Chipsticks, what a nice piece of work, niceeeeeee. I was just smiling and grinning as I wacthed the Video. POTUS has a way of making you come alive, when you see him. Sunshine, brings out the best In you. I pray for our PREZ and his Family, and all who are connected to him daily. I believe our Prez was not only elected, but CHOSEN, and I’ll just leave It at that 🙂

    I love the shots of his hands; so beautiful, elegant and strong. I also like the way that he embraces people; none of those half-hearted, somewhat embarrassed, side hugs for our prez. Would write more, but I am so full; so grateful. I do not have enough words to express how happy I am that he is our president. President Obama is re-writing the rules for the American presidency.

    thank you. You have captured exactly what has drawn us to this amazing man – the children’s faces tell it all – they are utterly open to him. They reflect right back to him what he is giving them…unconditional acceptance and love. Could there be a better model for all the world than the president shown in this fine chronicle. thank you Pete Sousa.

    beautiful! thank you chipsticks for putting those pics to the beautiful music and for making it longer! my favorite pic has to be the president looking into the face of the little black boy with the red tie. the image of all the hands with the various skin colors is also wonderful, love the image of the excited servicemen & servicewomen, the image of the president with ted kennedy feels so historic and the last image of the president in the rain speaks volumes. many thanks once again my dear.

    i like what jan said above “could there be a better model for all the world than the president shown in this fine chronicle.” i ditto those remarks.

    i wonder if we will ever be able to hear from pete sousa in the future about his experience photographing president obama. he photographed other presidents as well….am i right about that?
