“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves…”
“I watch my daughters — two beautiful, intelligent, black young women — playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.” First Lady Michelle Obama at the DNC
If the First Lady’s words, as her voice cracked with emotion, are not motivation in particular for urban America to succeed, to pursue an education, and take care of your community, understanding that nothing worthwhile in life is easy…if that does not motivate you, what will? I thought about the First Lady’s words as we celebrated our daughter, Courtney Carter cracking into the world of TV Reporters, following in her dad’s footsteps.
Success is always possible, if we *believe* we can do it, and are willing to put in the work.
Thank You First Lady Michelle Obama.
