16. Oh God...she's bloody Brililant. Talk about inspiration. I'm about ready to cry.
Edited on Thu Apr-09-09 04:27 PM by vaberella
The White House is now America's playground and we get to have this close to a personal relationship. Remember how people used to see it as a privilege to see the White House or go on the grounds...or even hang with the President or First Lady---if you could. Now it's like their readily accessible. Like anyone can just have a conversation with them if you want too. These kids definitely are part of history, landmark and hopefully see the change for what it's been for.

Has this ever been done before by ANY First Lady?

Thanks Jackeens.
