What, no photos?! That's right. I feel very fortunate to live in Chicago. I took my daughters to the Obama rally in Grant Park and I didn't even take a camera. The reason for no camera was that I wanted to be with and totally present for Stella and Lily. We stood shoulder to shoulder for hours with a sea of people from all over the country and watched history in the making. I cried and so did many other people--even the really big guy just in front of us. I was so proud of our country and I was proud of Chicago with how it accommodated the largest crowd I've ever seen.
Two years ago I photographed Michelle Obama when she was speaking at a luncheon for a Chicago think tank. She spoke of the less fortunate in America in such an eloquent manner that I left that day wishing SHE would run for president. I say it's about time we have someone in the White House who is intelligent and knows how to complete a sentence!
Just my opinion.
