Photo of the Day

image of a cheering crowd at a Clinton-Kaine campaign event; some people are holding up a banner featuring Hillary's face and the words YOU'RE MY HERO, with H in hero her campaign logo; a few people over, a little Black girl in a purple dress taking a picture with her purple-covered tablet sits on (presumably) her mom's shoulders, and her mom is peering out from under the bottom of the girl's dress with a huge grin on her face

At first glance, you might think the reason I chose this picture is because of the banner. And yes, that's terrific! But the real story of this photo is the little Black girl in the purple dress, sitting on (presumably) her mom's shoulders to get a picture of Hillary with her purple-covered tablet, and her mom is holding up the bottom of the girl's dress, peering out from under it with a huge grin on her face.
