Michelle Obama is touring the country to promote her new book “Becoming“.

She visited Ellen DeGeneres on her show. 

We, the audience, had the pleasure of Michelle’s company for the full hour. She regaled us with stories, information, humor and her presence. She was a breath of fresh air.

In return, Ellen had a surprise for Michelle. 

You can watch it below.

It’s invaluable for me.

MICHAEL BUBBLE STAND UP TO CANCER

THE LOVE OF A FAMILY

There’s strength in numbers.

The whole family moved to be together and hold their little man in a loving embrace and support of their family.

Michael Bublé joined James Corden in the Carpool Karaoke lane to support a cause near and dear to his heart. First broadcast in the UK as part of a Stand Up to Cancer special, the Canadian crooner spoke to the Late Late Show host about his son Noah, who was previously diagnosed with cancer in 2016.

Bublé said that when they received the news about his son Noah’s cancer diagnosis in 2016, his “whole life ended.”

“It’s so hard to have to acknowledge it because it’s so painful to talk about,” he said.

Holding back tears, he talked about what his family went through and how all of them moved to California to get the best treatment for Noah, who has since been in remission.

“When this all started, I became the strength to somehow pull us and lift us and to be positive,” Buble told Corden.

“When they got the cancer out and the chemo was done and they said, ‘We did it, it’s good, he’s okay,’ I fell, I just fell. My wife picks me up now.”

Bublé encouraged viewers to contribute to Stand Up to Cancer before he and Corden ended the emotional Carpool Karaoke session with a stirring rendition of “Home.”

‘Miracle on the Hudson’ Pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger III …. “✈️🇺🇸 The Fabric of our Nation is Under Attack 🇺🇸✈️ …. “!!

VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL

~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger

MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!

I was always impressed by this American human being.

I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.

For sure, I watched the movie.

Yet, last night, as I watched  him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.

His gravitas is impressive.

Take a look!

~The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell~

Sul2

The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.

“This is not the America I know and love.

We’re better than this.”

The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.

Sul3

“We cannot wait for someone to save us.

We must do it ourselves.

This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.

Sul4

Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”

“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.

“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”

‘Why Oprah Votes’ …. “🤨 OPRAH WINFREY AND STACEY ABRAMS …. The Perfect Combo 🤨 …. “!!


Oprah Winfrey Campaigns With Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Stacey Abrams

~~November 2, 2018~~ 

OPRAH WINFREY AND STACEY ABRAMS

Oprah Winfrey campaigns with Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams

What a magnificent sight!!

I’ve been closely following Stacey’s gubernatorial run in Georgia and know all about the devious, cheating ways of Brian Kemp.

There’s a huge disenfranchisement of African-American voters at the hands of the Secretary of state who, at the same time, is running for governor.

Tad hypocritical, tad conflict of interests, you think?

Anyway, Oprah’s on the way!!

Here’s so hoping that this takes Stacey over the top!!

Op3

Oprah Winfrey has lent her star power to Stacey Abrams, the Georgia Democrat aiming to become America’s first black female governor in the midterm elections next week.

“I am here today because Stacey Abrams cares about the things that matter,” Winfrey told a cheering crowd at a Cobb County town hall, citing Abrams’ stance on environmental protection, healthcare and gun control.

Winfrey, who said she is a registered independent, has long championed Democratic Party causes and some fans earlier this year tried to encourage her to run against Drumpf in 2020.

She has said she does not want to run.

“I’m here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed … I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain,” she told the audience, to cheers.

Abrams’ Republican rival, Brian Kemp, serves as Georgia secretary of state, a role in which he oversees state elections. Earlier this month, a coalition of state civil rights groups sued Kemp, accusing him of trying to depress minority voter turnout to improve his chances of winning.

 She came to Georgia because she chose to, not because anyone paid her

 She doesn’t plan on running for president

Voting is extremely important to her

‘For anybody here who has an ancestor who didn’t have the right to vote and you are choosing not to vote, wherever you are in this state, in this country, you are dishonoring your family, you are disrespecting and disregarding their legacy, their suffering and their dreams when you don’t vote,” Winfrey said, adding that the right to vote is like “the crown that we all get to wear.”

‘Día De Los Muertos’

~DAY OF THE DEAD~

The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere.

The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey.

In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
