106-year-old says she can 'die happy' after meeting Obama...

At 106 years old, she's seen more than a dozen presidents come and go, but Virginia McLaurin says she can finally die happy after meeting President Barack Obama. Video of the centenarian shaking her groove with the president and his wife quickly went viral on the Internet after last week's Black History Month reception at the White House.

The grandmother told The Associated Press that when she saw the president and first lady Michelle Obama in the flesh, 'I was so happy, I started dancing.'
'I've come a long ways, a long ways,' McLaurin said in an interview outside her Washington home. 'I just didn't think I'd ever live to go this far in the world.'

Somethings we take for granted mean a lot for so many. This life depends on perspective. What is really worth living for or what is important is life?
