2. Forward, Cha.

We're moving things forward.

In his speech posted at the White House link~

And let me just start off with a public service announcement to dads, partners, kids of America -- (laughter) -- Sunday is Motherís Day. (Laughter.) You should not forget. (Laughter.) You canít go wrong with flowers, a homemade card, giving some mom -- giving mom some relief, some quiet time. That is appreciated. (Laughter.)

So itís a day when we put moms first. And I still remember one time I said to Michelle -- this is back when we had just gotten married and I think Malia had just been born, and we were fussing around Motherís Day, and I said, but you know, how come we do so much stuff on Motherís Day? She says, because every other day is Manís Day. (Laughter.) So this is like one day. And there was, as usual, profound insight in Michelleís remarks because moms so often put themselves last; so often they put everything else before themselves.
