I was surfing through the web reading up on info about our President of the United States, Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama. I was totally taken by this letter from Mrs. Obama on Elle.com addressed to women like us. I just had to share with you.

 

 

Dear readers,

When I fell in love with Barack more than 20 years ago, I knew he’d be a loving husband and a devoted father. I knew he shared my determination to make a difference in other people’s lives. But I never dreamed that he’d one day be president, and I know that he didn’t either.

But four years ago—against all odds—I joined millions of Americans from all backgrounds and walks of life to vote for Barack. I didn’t do it just because we were married. I voted for him because I knew he was going to stand up for women like me—and our daughters, sisters, and mothers. When I look at all he’s done since that freezing day he was inaugurated on the Capitol steps—from health-care reform, to saving jobs, to fighting for women’s rights—I’m proud of how far we have come. And I’m determined to help him keep moving forward.

First Lady, Michelle Obama
