“When they go low, we go high”

This is now my favorite motto. “When they go low, we go high.” Michelle only gets to speak on occasions. But when she does, as in this Convention, she dispels remaining doubts as to why she is the First Lady. Her message liberates and unites.

This reminds me of the debate young people participated in during a training for LGBTQCIs. One of the topics had been same-sex marriage. The contention of the team who was against the arrangement was, the kids are NOT okay. They developed and centred their argument on this message.

I’m for same sex marriage. But listening to their argument which appealed to heart and mind, I was swayed to understand their side and question my own stand. I voted them as the winning team. As did the judges.
