A Personal Tribute to President Barack Obama


Barack Obama: Seed of Hope

       

Congratulations to President Barack Obama, the first African-American President of the United States! To celebrate this historic milestone, I crafted a portrait using one of the most basic elements: seeds. To me, President Obama represents a seed of hope. Despite the challenges he faced throughout his life, he grew into a remarkable man who now holds the highest office in the greatest nation on earth. He has inspired our country, and millions of others around the world, to join together and proclaim that "Yes we can."
