The Moment We’ve All Been Waiting For!

And like that, she arrived in front of a campus full of adoring, hopeful, excited, and energetic supporters. All gathering on the highest of seven hills to catch a glimpse of the soon to be first lady of the United States. The wife of the man making history all over the world. Yes, she is Michelle Obama and she took the city of Tallahassee by STORM today. Now there are times when a person is excited about stuff. But I can’t even begin to describe how it felt to be in the presence of Michelle Obama today. Its one thing to see her on tv looking beautiful and black but a entire new experience to be a few feet away from her. I was screaming and shouting like I was on the first row of a Michael Jackson concert. Michelle wasted no time in getting into the reason for her being at FAMU. She was there to remind everyone about the importance of this election. That a movement is happening all across America. In small towns, big cities. Young people and old people alike. Something special is happening. People are believing in hope again. She reminded us that her and Barack ONLY paid off their student loans a few years ago. And are only out of debt because of two best selling books he wrote. She knows that Barack will be a president who understands what it is like to struggle and be in debt. Unlike the rich and privileged John Mccain and George Bush. She also spoke about how her husband plays a small part but that we the voters are the real reason change is coming this election. To see for yourself all the great that Michelle Obama had to say watch the clip below!

And so it was written that I was there in 2008 when the first black First Lady of the United States came to FAMU! According to the Tallahassee Democrat there were *8,000* people at the rally! Its a movement!

Clowns For Obama

Posted by thelense on Sunday, September 28, 2008

So today was the big day on campus. Future first lady Michelle Obama was going to visit the campus of Florida A&M University and give a speech. Also, Jill Biden the wife of Vice Presidential running mate Joe Biden was coming. Before the event started a female clown was campaigning hard for Obama. She set up a little table to do face painting for the kids and was a lot of fun!

Her posters were hard core!
