Women’s History Month: Michelle Obama: Opening Doors

Michelle Obama and I share the same birthday — January 17. How cool is that? And, that has nothing to do with this post. I just wanted to share that little piece of connectivity I have with the first lady. What I have been doing since my last diary postings was reflecting on Women’s History Month, and realizing how important it is to profile women who are making, or have made a difference in this world. For me, it’s always about education.  And first lady, Michelle, has been doing just that…educating. It’s not just the vegetable garden that
makes me tip my hat to her, it’s the message she is sending to our young people. YOU, matter! 

"In another star-packed, White House-coordinated event, first lady Michelle Obama and a line-up 
of A-list stars — including Alicia Keyes, Sheryl Crow, Debbie Allen and Alfre Woodard — plan to fan 
out to Washington-area schools on Thursday, where they will speak with students about setting career 
goals and reaching their dreams.

The events are part of the first lady’s celebration of Women’s History Month." (comes via The Washington Post)

More on Mrs. Obama, tomorrow.
