First Lady Michelle Obama was in Atlanta yesterday to talk about Let's Move! her initiative to restore healthy food choices for school meals and to inspire American families to fight childhood obesity.
Her speech at North Point Community Church (Andy Stanley's congregation) was terrific. Read it and remember the days when you could really BE a free range kid who stayed outdoors until called home for dinner.
And she quoted my friend Aaron Mark, proud dad of Murray!
Aaron Marks, a father from Decatur, Georgia, wasn't happy when he found out that his four year-old son was eating pizza for breakfast at school...and donuts and cookies for snacks. So he talked to the school administrators. He joined the school's nutrition committee. And he helped raise money to plant a garden. As he put it: "You just can't take no for an answer. You have to be tenacious." So it's never easy.
