“I think about my mother, who, as a little girl, went to segregated schools in Chicago and felt the sting of discrimination. I think about my husband’s grandparents, white folks born and raised right here in Kansas, products themselves of segregation. Good, honest people who helped raise their bi-racial grandson, ignoring those who would criticize that child’s very existence. And then I think about how that child grew up to be the President of the United States, and how today that little girl from Chicago is helping to raise her granddaughters in the White House.”—First Lady Michelle Obama, speaking in Topeka, Kansas on the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education.

Sometimes I wish I could be happily oblivious. Wouldn’t that be easier than thinking and overthinking so much?
