      What a great moment for the girls. Thanks for the rare pictures of the girls. It is great to see them enjoying the perks of being the First Daughters.

      This is a wonderful family image.

      The kids look so fascinated. What an education they are truly "living".....and sharing with other kids of the world through the teachings of wonderful teachers.

      Children need shelter. Malia and Sasha are provided for how about the rest of the country?

      @ johnsonshepherd
      Since the majority of Americans don't like government to get involve.
      I would strongly suggest that any children that have no home they should continue to be in the shelter, and people should continue to pay for their healthcare, and continue to lose their home and their live saving.
      In the meantime, the government should focus more on wars, spending on wars, continue to be in Iraq and better yet, lets bomb Iran and North Korea because they are not listen to us Americans

      This is a beautiful photo of the First Family .Great lighting. I can only imagine that they must be thinking of Great grandmother Dunham and Grandmother Stanley Ann Dunham. Malia's middle name is Ann after the President's mother among other family members long gone The candle lighting is a lovely and thoughtful gesture.
