Heart-melting right? Well the picture has since gone viral, and how could it not? Add in the fact that this little Black girl is looking at a life-size portrait a Black woman from the White House, and you’ve got a tear-jerking photo waiting to happen.

…and then we’ll be partying with Michelle!
Too much hopeful wishing? Clearly, Parker has started something.
