Mrs. Obama wrote this letter, to us as military families. I won't link to the military.com version, because I am completely ashamed of the vitriolic, racist, revolting comments that have vomited forth from some of the commentors over there. But I wanted to share it with my readers. Tears are not far from the surface this week... and every time I read this, I do get choked up. Because finally, finally, someone is saying what I always wanted a person in her position to say - that they get it.
for those of you who wish to spew your nastiness - don't do it here.
On my way to the BSF4O victory celebration at Ft. Belvoir - and there's an inaugural ball in the ballroom downstairs as well. For the first time in 8 years, I have hope.
