Today is Michelle Obama’s birthday! I’m convinced that intergalactic goddesses don’t age like the rest of us. But we mere mortals would say that she’s 53 today. And what a 53 years it’s been. She’s not only the first African American First Lady of the United States, but she’s also the first First Lady to go to an Ivy League school for undergrad (she also skipped second grade. Bottom line: she’s pretty damn smart.) During her time as First Lady she’s formed several initiatives to help as many American families as possible. I’ve read and heard about- but obviously can’t personally speak to- what she means to black women in this country. But she’s also been a wonderful representative of all American women for the world.
It’s impossible for me to pick the best Michelle Obama moments, because every little thing she does is magic. “What would Michelle Obama do” will always be my mantra, that’s how crazy fantastic she is. I’ve selected a few of my favorites though to relive today.
It’s truly a shame that she doesn’t want to run for political office. It’s understandable because politics is horrendous, but still upsetting. We need her. For the sake of America, I certainly hope that we have other First Spouses like her, but that seems unlikely to happen for a while. She’s something incredibly special and I consider myself fortunate that I actually got to live during her time as First Lady instead of having to read about it in history books years from now.
