I emailed my dad (who is a lifelong soccer player/fan) a picture of Michelle Obama doing a soccer clinic on the lawn of the White House.

He replied “That is great. For a moment I thought that was you!”

What an awesome reminder that even though the country seems divided and politics can be frustrating, right now there is someone in the White House who, on the most basic level,  looks like me. That’s pretty damn cool.
