This book arrived on time which was good since I used this book to write a report for a citizenship class. It was okay. All of the speeches were nice, but repetitive. The message of rags to riches and hope was in several speeches, so those speeches became somewhat boring to read. Individually, the speeches would touch any human heart, but together, the same message can get tiresome. Over all though, it was a nice read, but I wouldn't recommend buying it. It's more of a book that I'd borrow or check-out.
Michelle was telling a story about how most Americans have made it in this country. I am truly tired of all the people who believe they are entitled to, or feel it is just their turn. I can relate to them, their lives, his message is inclusive and its given me new hope for my grandchildren. Unfortunately for my children`s their generation has been hijacked by bad policies and arrogant leaders with greedy cohorts and attitudes that told the world America can do anything we want because we have the strongest military in the world. I feel better about our country with The Obama's in the White House. Compassion, Truth, Justice, Fairness for all of us not just a few of us. Aloha.
Michelle's speeches were amazing, not only is Michelle a women who models integrity across the nation for all of our youth and adult. She makes dreaming for African American girls, ladies, and women feel like the reach is not to high. My sincere appreciation to Michelle for sharing het speeches.
