Because it can sometimes be a little confining, living in the White House is sometimes like living in a “really nice prison,” First Lady Michelle Obama said Tuesday, according to remarks sent to the press. source
PRISON in some countries means daily physical, mental and sexual torture. EVERY DAY women (and children) are sold as wives, for sex and as payment of debt. They are merely objects to be bought, sold and bartered.
Prisoners do not attend $500+ per plate social dinners. They do not travel the WORLD with over 100 staff members to take care of their every need and whim. PRISONERS don't go on ALL expense paid vacations. So to summarize my frustration I have written a letter to this "prisoner."
Dear Mrs. Obama,
I'm so sorry to hear of your incarceration. If you feel that the "burden" of living ALL expenses paid in the White House, not having to clean up after your husband and children after working a 40+ hour week, your trips around the world and the little things like grocery shopping...I am sure there are millions of women around the world who would be happy to take your place.
Do you find it too difficult to bear making ends meet at the end of the month? Is your "prison" laundry piling up due your busy press and social schedule. When was the last time you had to choose between prescription drugs for your child or putting food on the the table? I'm sure there are millions of women around the world who would be grateful to take your place.
If you ran a spreadsheet with your expenses and income like we do in our house, you might learn a thing or two. Times are tough all over and it takes serious work to keep it all together. But really Mrs. Obama, I'm sure there are millions of women around the world who would be happy to take your place.
Next time you look out those sparkly, bullet proof window of the White House, please remember that there are women out there living in deplorable conditions...being beaten and raped every day as they are slaves and this is "normal" in their society.
Living in Reality which I call Paradise
