#ObamaAndKids is the cutest hashtag you'll see today

It will nourish your weary soul.

AS THE US presidential race rumbles on, people are taking time to celebrate current President Barack Obama in a very sweet way.

The hashtag #ObamaAndKids took off after White House photographer Pete Souza shared this lovely photo of the President meeting a little boy at a recent Black History Month Event:

The image was tweeted by activist Michael Skolnik, who said: “We’ll never truly be able to measure the impact that President Barack Obama has had on our children.”

Skolnik encouraged his followers to share their favourite pictures of Obama with children, and #ObamaAndKids was born. Twitter soon discovered there are a LOT of adorable pictures to choose from.

First Lady Michelle Obama even joined in on the fun, tweeting this sweet photo of her husband and their children:

If that didn’t melt your heart a little bit, we don’t know what will.
