Thanks to Philadelphia educator H. Songhai I found this touching slideshow of President-elect Barack Obama and his family on election night last week, as they experienced together intense moments of waiting, hoping, and eventually celebrating together the culmination of so many years of hoping and dreaming.

I want to view this slideshow set to music, and I’m guessing it won’t be long before someone creates a remix that includes music. I was struck by several things watching these images flash by on my laptop screen.

First, isn’t it going to be WONDERFUL and amazing to, again, have a young President with young children in the White House?

Many of these photographs are intensely personal. Look at those hands held together. This image speaks volumes to me.

I adore this photo. The proud children, coming out to congratulate their father. Wow.
