Encouraging Words from Michelle Obama

Doug Mills/The New York Times

That First Lady of ours is a very swell person. Make sure you catch this article about how she visits schools around Washington, D.C. Here's an excerpt:

Her office sends signed photographs to the children she has met and has invited some, including Akrem, to visit the White House. And her aides responded affirmatively when Jasmine Williams, a high school senior from a crime-ridden neighborhood, invited the first lady to address her graduation from a charter school dedicated to math and science.

Jasmine burst into tears when she heard the news. For many of these children, Mrs. Obama has provided an incredible boost.

Tiara said Mrs. Obama persuaded her to go to college, though she had not applied yet. Akrem said he was working harder in school. Ashleigh Cannon, 17, said the first lady persuaded her to ignore negative voices.
Regime change indeed.


Stumble It!
