This image was made the night of the election in 2008 at University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The crowd of 20,000 waited through a short rain shower to wait for Obama to speak. That day was also the same day Obama grandmother had passed and this is the moment after Barack spoke about the passing. You can tell in the faces of the crowd this is a moment of silence as Barack Obama shead a tear as he recomposes himself. The Obama and the democrats party won North Carolina by 20,000, which was the same size as the crowd.
