Without getting political, although I’m sure you can guess who my November vote is going to, I have to comment for a moment on Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention tonight.
Michelle Obama’s speech brought me to tears. She was eloquent, ingenious, and real. She made her points while weaving in the personal experiences of herself and the president. Brilliant. She spoke from the heart, and showed emotion and energy, but remained powerful and in control.
And that dress? She was gorgeous! Her elegance reminds me so much of Jackie O, yet she gives off a much greater sense of confidence than the young Jackie O did when she was First Lady. Michelle Obama is a woman who inspires me. From her stance on childhood obesity to her obvious adoration of her husband, Michelle Obama is the type of
woman person I aspire to be someday.
Michelle Obama is my hero, and I am proud to call her my First Lady.
