Our First Lady.....

"I think when it comes to black kids, it means something for them to have spent most of their life seeing the family in the White House look like them," she said.

This matters......

    Quoting ranchomongo:

I can't begin to think I know her, but I suspect she is a really neat woman......

It is interesting that we have had some awesome first ladies, even of the presidents I wasn't fond of.

The observant make the best lovers,
I may not do right, but I do write,
I have bliss, joy, and happiness in my life,

A number of OpEd's appeared in the wake of her recent speech. In "The Authentic Power of Michelle Obama" Frank Bruni observed:

You know what struck me as authentic? The way that the first lady and George W. Bush leaned into each other and held hands at a funeral for police officers in Dallas back in July. Or the way that they embraced last month in Washington at the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

To look at those images is to understand Michelle Obama's power. She isn't tailoring her behavior to talking points. She isn't filtering her emotions through any partisan agenda. She has arguably become the 2016 race's moral authority, which is why Clinton, in the most recent debate, repeated her widely quoted assertion that "when they go low, we go high." That's hardly accurate about everyone in the Democratic Party, the Clinton campaign or the Obama administration, but it's a fair enough description of how the first lady comports herself.

Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.

it meant so much.

to belittle it like the congress did.......like Trump is doing. it shames the legacy of a great President who acted with grace, who never besmirched his legacy, who showed Americans that caring and being human were acts of righteous behavior.

I wish i vote for him yet again...and for Michelle. The were impeccable. and black Americans should be prouder than most. their president was the best president this country has had in years.

You cannot conceive the many without the one.
