i'm leaking already.

and now, seeing him come out of the church, i remember the fear from election night... how can they possibly protect him from one nutball in a crowd of millions?

how can he not be terrified in ten different ways with the pressure of today to the point of turning and running? that's bravery right there. a huge load on his shoulders already.

i just commented on a friend's journal and linked to a photo of the obamas by the new chief photographer, pete souza, taken just moments before obama announced he was running for the presidency. it's a very loaded moment knowing he's on the cusp of changing his family's lives forever.
