“bullying is not a rite of passage”

President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama meet with students and parents from the Conference on Bullying Prevention in the Oval Office of the White House, March 10

President Obama opened a White House conference on bullying Thursday morning by telling students and parents that picking on kids isn’t a “rite of passage” — and he said that when he was younger, he was a victim of it as well. “With big ears and the name that I have, I wasn’t immune,” Obama said. “I didn’t emerge unscathed.”

In listing reasons that kids may be bullied, Obama mentioned skin color, disabilities and sexual orientation. “Bullying can have destructive consequences for our young people,” he said. “Sometimes we overlook the real damage that bullying can do.”

….with Maryland’s First Lady Katie O’Malley

First lady Michelle Obama sits with Emily and Sarah Buder. The Buder sisters started a letter-writing campaign to raise a bullied girl’s spirits and turned the project into a book.

another hey: happy valentine’s day!

For The Obama Diary’s video-finder supreme: Donna

The song, ‘God damn you’re beautiful’, is by Chester See – you can see his own video here – I posted this video on YouTube in early 2009 … one of the comments read: “I am Chester See and I approve this message.” Yep, it was the singer of the song. Love him ;-)

Hey: a bonus tune!

Feb. 6, 2010: “Another snowstorm blanketed Washington for the second time in a few days. Because it was a Saturday, I hung around the White House thinking that the President might venture out in the snow with his daughters.

Dec. 10, 2010: “The President had just met with former President Clinton late on a Friday afternoon. When they emerged from the Oval Office, the President said, “We’re going to the press briefing room.” I had walked ahead of them and, upon reaching the briefing room, found that the door was locked: the press office staff were all attending a White House Christmas party in the residence. So we went to find Robert Gibbs. “We’re looking for some reporters,” the President said, when we found Robert Gibbs in his office. Returning to the briefing room, the two Presidents waited until someone found a key, before doing an impromptu news conference.” (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

Oct. 30, 2010: “The President has lunch with Sen. Bob Casey at the Famous 4th Street Deli in Philadelphia. I love the woman in the background on the phone, probably alerting her family about her lucky seat.” (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
