I just finished reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. Oh how I miss having good people leading our nation. The book is Michelle’s story. Her journey and story of growth. An important thing to remember is that as long as we are alive, that journey does not end. We should always be learning and growing and striving to improve.
Whenever I read books about politics, I am reminded of how little I know and how much I avoid the topic. Politics overwhelm me, and I often take the easy way out by not engaging anyone in political discussions or getting involved in political activism. I know I should do better.
As Mrs. Obama states in her book, “Becoming requires equal parts patience and rigor. Becoming is never giving up on the idea that there’s more growing to be done.” Ultimately, this book is definitely one of optimism. I relate to her hope and passion. I believe that each of us can help to make the world a better place.
