"Can I touch your hair?"

“A temporary White House staffer, Carlton Philadelphia, brought his family to the Oval Office for a farewell photo with President Obama. Carlton’s son softly told the President he had just gotten a haircut like President Obama, and asked if he could feel the President’s head to see if it felt the same as his.” (Official White House photo by Pete Souza)

This photo of the President and a young boy brings tears to my eyes.
