MICHELLE OBAMA ACKNOWLEDGES MILITARY SPOUSES AT WOMEN’S CONVENTION

Speaking at the Women’s Conference in Long Beach, CA this morning (October 26, Michelle Obama made a plea on behalf of military spouses and their unique challenge of balancing work and family.

“While most of us don’t experience these struggles to the same degree as military spouses – that nagging sense that you’re falling short at work and at home, that tendency to worry about and care for everyone but yourself – these things are universal,” said the First Lady.

Looking gorgeous in a black and white frock, Michelle recalled a military wife in a discussion in Kentucky who was brought to tears detailing her stressful life when another woman jumped up and said, “I don’t know this woman. But when she leaves here, she will have my number and she will be able to call me any time. She’s got the support of this friend right here.”

Michelle brought the point home, saying, “It is what we do for our sisters, it is what we do for our girlfriends, our mothers and our daughters. We show up. We show up at the door with some food. We show up at the door with some chocolate. And if things are really bad we show up with a bottle of wine. We, as women, know how to reach out. We know how to support each other. And the question is: What can we as women do to support our military spouses?”
