Let Them Inspire You

“I remember well the four thirty moment. I guess what’s so striking is that it seemed -- to my imagination -- it seemed amazing and undoable. I really couldn’t imagine how I could do that. But one of the things that I found… is that if you don’t take your time early it’s hard to get your time…I was very, very inspired to see the way that she [Michelle Obama] seemed to just turn on a switch and stuck to it. She’s quite a determined woman. And that was inspiring.”

-- Elizabeth Alexander, Hamden, Connecticut , close friend of Michelle Obama
