First Lady Michelle Obama will appear today on Oprah to talk about military families. Mrs. Obama says that that it’s not that Americans won’t help military families; it’s just that they are not aware of the pressures of deployment on families. This is something that she hopes to remedy.
Asked what moves her about our armed services, Michelle said, “Their strength. Their pride. Their courage. Their willingness to sacrifice without complaint.”
“That’s what moves me every time. Whenever I’m feeling bad, or feeling sorry for myself, I suck it up because of these families.”
As for why Michelle is speaking up, she says it’s because someone has to.
