Notations On Our World (Special Friday Edition): On President's Day W-End Here in the United States

Earlier this week, our team chose this to tweet which we wanted to feature in honor of President's Day here in the United States:  

This is as President Obama's Official Portrait was unveiled Monday at the Smithsonian in Washington and what was noted by the New York Times on the setting of it was telling: "...Kehinde Wiley (The Artist)  has set Mr. Obama against greenery, with flowers that have symbolic meaning: African blue lilies for Kenya, his father’s birthplace; jasmine for Hawaii, where Mr. Obama was born; chrysanthemums, the official flower of Chicago, for the city where his political career began....along with Mrs. Obama "
