    There is a song titled Daddy’s Little Girl, by Peter Love on YouTube that I think will be a song for the Father Daugther dance or for Obama love for his agedthurs. What a beautiful song. I mentioned it because it is a song about a man’s unwavering love for his daughter. I see this with Obama and his girls. Go hear the song.
