It’s funny to note the touch of American influence in far flung areas of the world…. like the Harvard T-shirt this child was wearing. Dog Meet World wants everyone to influence others with personal affirmation through photography.

Michelle Obama said during the commencement address for George Washington University “know that when you serve others abroad, you’re serving our country, too. You’re showing the world the true face of America –- our generosity, our strength, the enduring power of our ideals, the infinite reservoir of our hope.”

Happy Birthday America.
