Letter: Memo to First Lady Obama

Published: Friday, May 10, 2013 5:20 p.m. CDT

To the Editor: It seems that First Lady Michelle Obama is centering her attention on Hadiya Pendleton and her fellow brothers and sisters. Reaching out to help students is very caring and comforting, but has she forgotten that there are a multitude of students who need to be recognized? Centering attention on a selective group seems to be a bit overdone.

Her stance on gun control is excellent and kudos to her for her effort. Hopefully some powerful people will recognize and assist her.

Regretfully, a stoic old lame duck Congress must be woken up — and I don’t believe they are ready for such issues. Best of luck!
