Major Mike meets Laura Bush

I had the profound honor yesterday of meeting the First Lady. Through a close family connection, who is LB's Chief-of -Staff, I was able to attend an event here in Portland and meet briefly with the First Lady.

She is perhaps, the most genuinely nice person I have met. The event, honoring the efforts of Friends Of The Children, obviously moved her. As she related some of the very real and personal stories of how FOTC had made a difference in the lives of some very challenged children, she was moved to near tears several times. This is truly a nice person.

It was a great experience for my 13 year old daughter and my wife as well. My daughter squealed with delight as we watched the six o'clock news and she caught a glimpse of herself on TV. But the event was made truly special by Mrs. Bush and her warmth, sincerity, and sweetness.
I can't wait for the pictures.

I am not a big fan of "celebrities" especially these days. Ther are, however people that I admire for their accomplishments or personality that I would like to meet.

Mrs. Bush is one of them. Lucky you!

Thanks for sharing your experience.
