Barack Obama visited Charlotte, NC during campaign for Presidency in 2008. I was chosen, with woman I made friends with while walking to event, to sit on the stage. It was about 100 degrees, and we had to wait hours, but it was worth it. A very memorable day!
Here is a “Photo Story” from that day. The last two images in the collection are from the news. In the first image, I circled me (behind the guy in orange shirt) and in the second photo, the woman I was sitting with.
