More Michelle Obama

Posted in Uncategorized by yliza on April 16, 2008

Yes, Michelle is getting the love today, but this clip in particular talks about something that’s close to my heart: public education.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Yes, to me Michelle Obama represents the American Dream, the one I envisioned as I was growing up during the Civil Rights Movement.

I also come from a working class family. I went to public school in NYC, and that public education was sufficient for me to go to college and eventually get a PhD. Yet this path is closed to my niece and nephew in the current economic and political environment.

I support Obama because I want the next generation to have the same opportunities that I had. Who better to do that than someone who experienced it for themselves?
