Michelle Obama’s clear and resonant voice tells it like it was from her very personal perspective. First Mother Of the United States and boy do I miss her. She did so much for the children of this great nation in such a natural way.
She is my role model for sure.
Insightful and spot on.

If you watch the news you are already aware of this content, but to have it condensed into a short form makes it even more outrageous.

Ronan Farrow is well educated, well connected, well traveled and well spoken. Redundant but true.
Informative and insightful concerning diplomacy in the real world and what we are giving up.
Researched thoroughly and fact checked meticulously this is a truly important document for our time.

Through the voices of the Syrians who have lived it, left it and want to return to their homeland, this account is a powerful vista of the varied positions of the people who are ‘visitors’ in sheltering countries. The presentation is powerful because it utilizes many readers to transmit the idea of identity.
A must read for the international perspective it imparts.
