Michelle Obama, reach out to America's homeless children

There's plenty of homeless children in America, and it is never too late to make a difference

First Lady Michelle Obama, you could make a real difference in the lives of America's most neglected people, homeless children.
Why not go out and visit these children, like those who sleep on the cold concrete floor of storage units in Tucson when it rains.
Since your interest is in fashion, why not design some backpacks and shoes for homeless children, with knockout designs. Pack those backpacks with pencils and notebooks.
If you are really brave, why not create those Beluga whale bags we suggested, celebrating the Arctic whales which must be protected from oil drilling in the Arctic.
You can invite these homeless children to the White House if you want to -- but what they need is far more.
In the long run, these children who represent every race and color in America, need warm, safe housing and food. They need clothes that other children will not laugh at, and a place to study at night.
You don't have to look beyond the streets of America, or the dusty backroads to find them.
While billions are spent on war, these children wander through the streets of America with their clothes in black plastic garbage bags.
It is likely you do not see these children. You do not ride the city bus with them, or walk past the vacant lots full of weeds, where they live, camped on blankets.
Michelle Obama, it is never too late to make a difference in their lives. And while you are out, why not stop in at the cancer wards of the children's hospitals.
Your visit could bring something special to dying children.
It is not too late to be a real trendsetter.
In the end, perhaps you will discover the true design, the gift for the giver that is concealed within.

Bravo. It is a wonder that visible even symbolic acts of compassion and inclusion seem so lacking among our political leaders and public officials who typically would command media coverage and perhaps become, as your say, Brenda, a trend-setter of such values for fellow citizens. Are they really too self-absorbed and strategic to challenge war and terror in the way of TV ratings? Too cowardly to stand up to blow back from powerful interests? Or in fact do they simply maintain a low, disparaging, and unabashed opinion of the people over - yes, over - whom they rule. Very sad, and dangerous!
