Michelle Obama Speaks on Missing Nigerian Girls

Michelle Obama: Barack and I See Our Own Daughters in Kidnapped Nigerian Girls

Michelle Obama speaks on missing girls, saying she sees her own daughters in them. 

First Lady Michelle Obama delivered her first solo weekly address Saturday in which she spoke about her outrage over the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls who have been missing for almost a month. In the address, the first lady said that “like millions of people across the globe, my husband and I are outraged and heartbroken” over the kidnapping “committed by a terrorist group determined to keep these girls from getting an education—grown men attempting to snuff out the aspirations of young girls.”

Speaking out on Mother’s Day weekend, Michelle Obama said that the kidnapping was important to her not only as first lady but “more importantly, as the mother of two young daughters.”
