At the grocery store the other day I saw three magazine covers featuring Michelle Obama.
It occurred to me that I've been seeing a lot of her lately. Then I realized that everyone has.
Very quietly one of the benefits of the presidency has been that this face is now the face of America.
This face is now a standard of beauty.
It stands for freedom and humanity.
This face represents strength and compassion and positive motherhood.
It fosters peace, fellowship and tolerance.
I have always known these things about faces like this.
And now the world knows it, too.
