On a Sunday, Sept. 9, President Barack Obama made a stop on the campaign trail at the Palm Beach County Convention Center on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach, Fla, the final stop of his two-day bus tour. Local Organizing for America offices offered free tickets to the event. As, I waited in line that Sunday with many people to be let into the convention center (it's estimated nearly 6,000 people were in attendance), the temperature was indeed hot, but everyone was friendly, helpful. and cool. The wait was worth it in my opinion. For the first time, I had the opportunity to see and hear a sitting U.S. president in person, a president I highly respect. The experience created a memory for a lifetime.
