  4. Thank you so much for these photos of our most wonderful President!  My heart always lifts when I just look at his face.  Doesn’t matter if I’m sad, happy, depressed to the depths, worried, anxious, afraid, hungry, cold, exhausted or sweating in the Florida sun…his very face reveals the man he is. Doesn’t matter if his face shows any of the emotions mentioned above, it never fails to bring a smile to my face, even sometimes through my tears.  To think!  How far we as a people have come; to think that there are so many Americans who can recognize the deep and abiding value in President Barak Obama; and to think that for once…in a very long time…we got it right!  He is what’s great in all of us; he is what’s compassionate in all of us; he is what’s believable in all of us; he is what’s lasting in all of us; he is what’s hopeful and promising in all of us; and he could…if given the chance…be what the rest of the world sees in all of us.  He is our leader, and he’s doing it magnificently. I have read his book, “Dreams of My Father” many times, and each reading brings a deeper love for the greatness in the man, a deeper appreciation for his integrity, and a deeper understanding of just how he came to be so outstanding.
