“We have this window of opportunity; we have a chance to make something real happen. Something possible happen, to live beyond our fear – think about that, and help us. Help lift us up, help us fight this fight to change, – transform – this country in a fundamental way. This chance won’t come around again.”

“You can’t make decisions based on fear and the possibility of what might happen. We just weren’t raised that way.”

“All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be.”

Happy 47th Birthday to First Lady Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama (January 17, 1964)
