Seed of Hope (lentils,onion,barley and fennel)
This amazing work was sent in by Manick Sorca: “Congratulations to President Barack Obama, the first African American President of the United States! To celebrate this historic milestone, I crafted the portrait using one of the most basic elements: seeds.” Wow! Check out the ingredients list inside.
To me, President Obama represents a seed of hope. Despite the challenges he faced throughout his life, he grew up to be a remarkable man who now holds the highest office in the greatest nation on earth. He has inspired our country, and millions of others around the world, to join together and proclaim that “Yes we can”.
