Mrs. Obama: "Be not afraid"

Here is the intro speech by Michelle Obama from yesterday's event. At the beginning, as the camera pulls in tight, look in the bleachers behind her to the right (just up from the Secret Service guy standing and wearing tan) and you'll see Drea's long dark hair and pink shirt. I'm next to her in a light blue shirt and our friend Les is next to me in light green.

Mrs. Obama has been getting raves for this speech, which has been plastered around the internet...

  1. Michelle Obama is really impressive. She is super smart and doesn't take any shizzle. She would be a breath of fresh air as First Lady over the First School Marm we have in there now...
