White House photographer Pete Souza snapped the monochrome photo of the young boy who was in utter awe of Obama's presence as the president touched his left cheek. According to NBC, the little boy was "so determined" to meet Obama that he scuffled his way to the rope line before the president even showed up to greet the crowd.

Entrepreneur Michael Skolnik, who saw the photo online, triggered the #ObamaAndKids hashtag that was met with countless of individuals sharing their favorite photos of Obama meeting America's youth at the White House. The First Lady shared her own photo on Twitter as well.
