“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA”: First Lady Michelle Obama; Mohammed Ali; Regina King; Eartha Kit; Dwayne Wade; Betty White; & Steve Harvey!!

It’s a week of birthday’s of some of the people that look like us, live, love & laugh just like us.

And they managed to change the world….

First, happy birthday to the uber fabulous First Lady of America, Mrs. Michelle Obama. She turns 48!

And this is what her hubby had to say:

When you become President, one thing that happens overnight is that you and everyone you love get a bunch of new nicknames.

I was already pretty used to this. But “FLOTUS,” short for First Lady of the United States, is really something else.

I’m writing because our FLOTUS, Michelle, turns 48 on Tuesday, and I know I’m not her only fan out there.

Will you join me in wishing her a happy birthday?

The decision to become part of this campaign was deeply personal for a lot of people, and Michelle and I are no exception. But we both knew, like anyone else who believes in what we’re trying to do here, that this was never going to be easy—that it requires commitment and sacrifice.

This fall, Michelle and I will have been married 20 years. The next 10 months will be harder than any we’ve experienced together, and I couldn’t do it without her. I know she’d love to hear from you today.

Thanks for your support,


Also born today is the Mohammed Ali who turns 70-years, famously said:

I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.

We also send birthday wishes to Eartha Kitt, Dwayne Wade, Betty White, Ray J, Shabba Ranks & Steve Harvey as they all celebrate their birthday’s today!!

Of course we started the week, this past Sunday, remembering the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was born January 15th, 1929.

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

And to Hollywood actress Regina King who turned 41 years on Jan 15; happy birthday Regina!….*love her!*
