I don’t usually stay up to watch party conventions – after all the end is a given, the commentary is tries to hard, and sometimes watching people give speeches in fronts of hundred of thousands of people can be downright painful – oops – a gaffe here, a stumble there. But I decided to turn into Michelle Obama’s speech – since, after all, she is growing on me.
She hit the right themes – a higher power, the American Dream, hard work, sacrifice, the ability to pull oneself up by one’s bootstraps. All in all, a pretty impressive speech – made all the more so by her poise, confidence, and her show of emotion speaking about the birth of her daughters. As she said,”He’s the same man who drove me and our new baby daughter home from the hospital 10 years ago this summer, inching along at a snail’s pace, peering anxiously at us in the rearview mirror, feeling the whole weight of her future in his hands.”
And after all – isn’t that how all of us, mothers & fathers feel?
