    Some pictures for the Obama fan's ;)



    CHICAGO - President-elect Barrack Obama and his wife took their daughters to work at a food bank on the day before Thanksgiving

    Ten-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha joined their parents to shake hands and give holiday wishes to hundreds of people who had been lined up for hours at the food bank on Chicago 's south side.

    the family handed out wrapped chickens to the needy in the chilly outdoor courtyard. Those seeking food on Wednesday at St. Columbanus also received boxes with potatoes, oranges, fresh bread, peanut butter, canned goods, oatmeal, spaghetti and coffee.
    The president-elect, dressed casually in a leather jacket, black scarf and khaki pants, was in a jovial mood, calling out "happy thanksgiving" and telling everyone "you can call me Barack."

    He told reporters that he wants the girls "to learn the importance of how fortunate they are, and to make sure they're giving back."
    The soon-to-be first lady said the Obamas wanted to give their children "an understanding of what giving and Thanksgiving is all about."

    The Obama family's activities in the courtyard quickly drew the attention of schoolchildren whose windows overlooked the courtyard. They put up a sign against the glass that read: "We love our prez" and screamed when the president-elect waved to them.

    Obama then turned to his wife and suggested they go visit the kids. Secret Service agents, looking surprised, disappeared inside the building to accommodate his request.
    Minutes later, hundreds of children were brought down to the school auditorium, and Obama loped onstage as they screamed and cheered.

    "I just wanted to come by and wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving," he said. He then asked the children what they would be eating for Thanksgiving dinner.

    Let us learn from this great family… and for those who have children, this is a wonderful example of raising our kids.

    that's why it's called the "PRESS"

    nothing to "PRESS" here

    just helping some people, maybe more so helping their spirit, you know that's

    not news worthy in Amerikkka, lol

    Zulile, I believe that this was no mere show and tell, but rather, a sincere look at a compassionate President. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Zulile...

    It saddens my heart to see a child without a light,
    so throughout this Obama experience I believe seeing
    the light in the eyes of children is what I enjoy the most.
    If Obama’s presidency inspire children and expand their prospect
    from dropouts, street pharmacists, career-criminals, gangster-rappers
    and pro-athletes to include presidency, where is the harm in that?


    Thanks for posting these.

    feelin’itsouldeep!
