Michelle Obama delivers high school commencement address Wednesday

| 2 Comments

WASHINGTON--First Lady Michelle Obama delivers the commencement address Wednesday morning at the Washington Math Science Technical High School.

After that, Mrs. Obama hosts a lunch for former First Lady Nancy Reagan in Washington. On Tuesday, Mrs. Reagan appeared with President Obama when he signed a bill to mark the 100th anniversary of former President Ronald Reagan's birth next year. Reagan died five years ago this week.

NORMANDY, PARIS ON DECK

At the end of the week, Mrs. Obama flied to France to meet up with the president at Normandy, where ceremonies will be held to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day. After that, she heads to Paris with, I'm told, daughters Malia and Sasha for a "private" visit and perhaps a family night.

BOOKKEEPERS ALERT: This will be Mrs. Obama's second graduation keynote; her first was at the University of California, Merced.

"At the end of the week, Mrs. Obama flied to France . . ."

"FLIED"?? How about, "Mrs. Obama FLEW to France. . . "

IT IS GREAT THAT THE FIRST LADY IS TAKING THE
CHILDREN TO NORMANDY FOR THIS HISTORIC RESPECTFUL
EXPERIENCE, THIS IS SOMETHING THEY WILL NEVER
FORGET!
MAY GOD BLESS THE OBAMA FAMILY!
