President Barack Obama talks with Mable Harvey, 102 from Washington, DC. , after a conversation with a small group of African American seniors and their grandchildren on the legacy of the civil rights movement in the Roosevelt Room of the White House in Washington Monday, Jan. 18, 2010.

……Obama made special note of two guests. “Mr. Joseph Harvey is 105, and Ms. Mabel Harvey here is the spry young one at 102,” Obama said. “And Ms. Harvey just now was whispering in my ear, as you guys were walking in, that this must be the Lord’s doing, because we’ve come a mighty long way.”
