4. This is truly 'lump in the throat' stuff.

Truly moving photo, when you REALLY understand the history being represented here.

6. that's so true.

I had just thought "Oh, I can never get enough of pictures of the President with little kids," but can you imagine what this picture would have meant to Rosa Parks? I feel silly for being so superficial; thank you for pointing out the incredible significance of this photograph.
