I absolutely love this photo of a little boy rubbing Obama's hair to see if it felt like his own. While any number of meanings and metaphors would be quite apt, to me it speaks of the power young children possess -- to catch us off guard, draw us into the moment, and pull us back to something pure and real. I don't remember where I first read it, but there's a line about children being "closer to the source," and I'd say that's just about right.
