OK — so not everybody loves Obama. I’m sure there will be endless discussion over whether his comments during the Grammy’s were a political maneuver or not — and what he has to gain by making such a public statement about violence against women. The debate will go on and on — but I want to say: who cares what his motives were? The message went out — loud and clear — that violence against women and girls is never OK. And that is a message that needs to be shouted from the rooftops by every political leader, every community leader, every person. Women and girls do not deserve to be abused under any circumstances. Nor does any person, no matter their gender, race, religion, politics, sexual preference or whatever else makes them different from you or I. We are all in this together — let’s choose kindness!
Thanks Mr. Obama!
