Michelle Obama Presenting at the Oscars
There were several surprises during the 85th annual Oscar awards show. Most monumental was when Michelle Obama appeared on camera from the White House to present the award for Best Motion Picture. She was positively radiant in her silver Naeem Khan evening gown. Michelle delivered an impassioned message about the value of the arts and the power of inspiration. I almost felt as though she was making an impassioned plea to the world to recharge our stores of strength, hope and acceptance. Something this world needs plenty of right now.
