While we’re waiting for a resolution to all this madness, my most-loved photo(s) from 2012:
President Obama greets World War II veteran Archie Hackney, 90, of Newton, (Archie’s first greeting of a sitting president) after remarks at TPI Composites, a wind manufacturer in Newton, Iowa (May 2012)
Look how determined Archie was to stand, as a demonstration of his respect.
