Me too-- I´ve been tearing up like a baby-- these photos are the evidence of sooo many wonderful quests for unity...I´m very happy I´m still alive after being a late teen in San Francisco early 60´s-- we SHALL overcome!

Love to you and yours (and Izzie the lovely),

JCF, funny, I kept trying to imagine what Barack Obama was saying that was sooo funny-- I think you nailed it (or something close).
