Michelle Obama: Remembering the FLOTUS
For the last eight years, Michelle Obama has been the heart of the White House. The impression and impact she has made will remain everlasting to those who’ve been affected. The Presidential Inauguration will take place and the Trump Administration will be in office and we will be saying goodbye to the FLOTUS.
President Obama couldn’t help but dedicate a part of his Farewell Speech to Michelle which had him in tears. The First Lady of The United States is an inspiration and role model for women and men of all ages and backgrounds. President Barack isn’t the only one to have presented a speech for the First Lady. During one of her final appearances on Jimmy Fallon Tonight, several regular everyday people came to record their Goodbye messages to Michelle with some powerful words of thanks and appreciation.
What Michelle Obama Brought To The Table
Michelle Obama has literally brought healthier living to the table in so many ways. Mrs. Obama is an advocate for healthy families and higher education. There are four well-known initiative she has established and they are:
- Let’s Move – Let’s Move is a public health campaign that is led by Michelle. The goal of this initiative is to reduce childhood obesity and encourage active lifestyles and good eating habits for children. The goals were simple, increase physical activity in and out of school, create a healthy start, empower parents and caregivers to be involved and active, healthier food options in school, and to provide access to healthy affordable foods. Walgreens, SuperValu, and Walmart have all committed to expanding and building more stores within communities with little or no access to healthy food, as well as, adding healthy organic options.
- Reach Higher – In 2014, the Reach Higher Initiative began with efforts to inspire the youth and younger generations all over the United States to further their education and broaden their horizons. This allows staff and other members within the educational systems to work with the kids to ensure they know exactly what it is they need to reach their goals.
- Let Girls Learn – This initiative set in place to ensure girls all over the globe get the proper education they deserve. There are many different obstacles girls around the world face that deprive them the education obstacles such as, money cause limitations. This initiative brings assurance to girls who want to learn.
- Joining Forces – Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden got together and launched the Joining Forces initiative which works with both private and public sectors to ensure that ALL service members, veterans, and their families have everything they need to be successful upon returning home and throughout the rest of their lives.
Michelle Obama, the First Lady of The United States, has been an inspiration to all. It’s almost as if she brought about a new women’s movement full of encouragement, understanding, and acceptance. Michelle made several appearances on different television shows letting us see her sense of humor, her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden from the Late Late Show will never be forgotten. Her Stevie Wonder and Beyonce karaoke were on point. Michelle also graced us with her Evolution of Mom Dancing with Jimmy Fallon with dance moves like “Where’s your father?” and “Driving The Station Wagon.”
Regardless if it’s remembering her speeches, dance moves, or the lasting impression she’s made in this world Michelle Obama is definitely worth it. I know we all act as if her leaving the White House means the final goodbye but she will still be around doing good things.
Michelle Obama, we speak your name.
