First Lady Michelle Obama At 2011 US Open

Michelle Obama

First of all, I hope I can post this without a bunch of political reactions. Whether this had been Michelle Obama, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, Nancy Reagan or any First Lady in the history of First Ladies, the Let’s Move initiative addresses a problem of inactivity plaguing young people (and not so young people) today. I would have made this post no matter which First Lady this had been. So let’s keep this about tennis and the program. And regarding the tennis, what a thrill for the young NJTL kids to get a chance to meet and hit with John McEnroe, Billie Jean King and Serena Williams. That’s a whole lotta Major titles between those three. 🙂 They also had a chance to meet American tennis stars James Blake, MaliVai Washington and Katrina Adams.
