3. Beautiful Child



WASHINGTON President Barack Obama met Friday with 16-year-old Malala Yousafzai, an advocate for girls' education and the target of a Taliban assassination attempt who was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Her accomplishments, strength and compassionate wisdom are a wonder to behold.

I couldn't agree with you more, my dear Blanche~

I know this is about Malala but seeing Malia, the look on her face too.

8. I think the Obamas thought it was important for Malia

to be there too.. with Malala. And, with role models like these..!

I know I loved the admiring look that Malia gave..

I know it's political but it's nice to see them together and smiling. Malia must be just delighted.

prominent place in their home. Lovely photo...

A Grantite Trot, but a Trotskyist nonetheless.

32. seeing that pic made me wonder, what kind of conversation would you have with the president?

I really would not know what to say to them. Not because I'm in awe or intimidated, but because I'm terrible at small talk. And what would be appropriate small talk with the leader of the free world? Weather? Nice shoes? Love Michelle's dress? How's school, Malia?

Now, if Bo and his sister were there, I'd completely ignore the Obama and run over to play with the dogs. Because I'm totally nuts about dogs.

34. I wrote the President once.

On my mom receiving my dad's disability payments. The VA was dragging their feet after he died and she was about to lose her house. So, I wrote him and told him our situation. Two weeks later, she got a call from the VA saying they received a call from the White House and they were going to process her claim.

33. I was filled with fear trying to decide to watch the 20/20 show

about Malala. Partly because I would lose it and blubber throughout the whole show, which I did.
But more importantly of the fact it exposes me as a coward. After watching her I am more disappointed in myself as a human being than ever. I can only hope to rise to her courage and character. As I hope we all can.
