I experienced a massive wave of emotion and nostalgia when I came across this today - especially when I read the caption from @nmaahc.
#PresidentObama was the first president I ever voted for and it was indescribable what that felt like...elation, joy, HOPE... His presidency stood for SO MUCH MORE than his politics and leadership...and now it feels like it was just a figment of my imagination.
Its images like this that remind me that positive change DID come...and that it was only the beginning despite what our current reality is at the moment.

In 2009, Pete Souza captured this moment of five-year-old Jacob Philadelphia touching former President Barack Obama’s hair. Young Jacob wanted to see if the President’s hair felt like his own.
Tonight, former White House photographer @petesouza joins us to discuss his book, “Obama: An Intimate Portrait,” which documents iconic photographs from the Obama presidency. Souza captured nearly 2 million photographs during his time with the administration. #TheObamaYears #APeoplesJourney
