Washington, February 11 (ANI): Michelle Obama has said that Washington had come to mean a new home for her family and they were looking forward to getting involved with the city.
The First Lady of the United States had paid a visit to a teen group at a health care centre in Adams Morgan and told the kids she has been “somewhat where you are.”
“We”ve been visitors but now we live here. This is our community now,” the Washington Times quoted her as saying.
“We were taught you have to get to know your community you”re in, and you have to be a part of that community and you have to get to know it in order to be actively engaged in it. D.C. is our community now and it’’s our home.
“I didn”t come to this position with a lot of wealth and a lot of resources. I think it’’s real important for young kids, particularly kids who come from communities without resources to see me.
“Not the first lady but to see that there is no magic to me sitting here. There are no miracles that happen, she added.
The mum-of-two later read a book “Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See” to a group of children between 3 to 5 years. (ANI)
