Mrs Obama’s letter in the Chicago Defender makes me wonder what could happen if we start to think of the possibility within certain neighborhoods, rather than just escalating with fear.

"Today, Bryn Mawr has been repurposed as Bouchet Math and Science Academy. Many of the South Shore stores and gas stations I knew as a child are gone or they’ve changed owners. But all the love that was poured into me? That’s still there. I know it is. And that’s why I can’t wait to see the good that comes out of the neighborhoods all across Chicago in the years ahead. I can’t wait to see what’s next for all the young people growing up today, walking the same sidewalks and sitting in the same classrooms as I once did. There’s no telling who they might become."

This negates the massive lead poisoning and intellectually, emotionally and physically handicapped beings that live down there.

The rate of people of disability is 3 times that of a higher SES area.

Michelle Obama needs to go to these areas without security and see for herself.
