A Woman Worth Listening To...

With grace and poise comparable only to Jackie Kennedy...Michelle Obama spoke of a speech Barack made years ago in Chicago:
"He talked about 'The world as it is' and 'The world as it should be.' And he said that all too often, we accept the distance between the two, and settle for the world as it is — even when it doesn't reflect our values and aspirations. But he reminded us that we know what our world should look like. We know what fairness and justice and opportunity look like. And he urged us to believe in ourselves — to find the strength within ourselves to strive for the world as it should be."
Michelle told us to: Listen to our hopes instead of our fears... Stop doubting, start dreaming, etc.

My hopes and dreams are of a world in which every child is a wanted child and every mother and father have all they need to provide for the health and safety of their children.

I dream of a world in which everyone knows their genetic heritage and to deny anyone that is a criminal offense because it violates their human rights.

I dream of a world where no human being needs to sell or rent any part of their reproduction genetic material for money.
I dream of a world without exploitation and coercion; with enough food and resources to go around; and all living in peace, love and harmony. A world without hate and violence.

Could the Obamas be the Kennedy's BACK IN BLACK...bringing back hope?
