They serve pizzas, hot dogs, and hamburgers at my son's school. The worst part is that they use the food pyramid and label these as good sources of healthy fat, minerals, and vitamins. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE!!! Thus, I want to know if more changes are going to be implemented to improve school lunches.

Hi Mrs Obama,



I'm an American ex pat living in Canada with my two girls. I'm wondering if you believe there is any way that American women will some day be able to have mandatory paid Maternity leave and that Americans will have a true form of UHC like we have here in Canada and other countries.

Do you try to shield your daughters from the negativity and stress that comes with the position you (and your husband) are in, or are they privy to a lot of the realities of being in the political spotlight?

Hello Mrs. Obama,



I truly admire the work you have done to help inspire kids to lead healthy lifestyles. What tips can you share in regards to encouraging your own children to make healthy eating choices? I have twin 21-month-old toddlers who love their fruit and the occasional broccoli spear or handful of peas, but I know they are really just beginning to develop their likes/dislikes and habits when it comes to food. I'd love to hear what works (or doesn't work) for your own family.



Thank you for your dedication to your family and country. You are truly an inspiration for women and mothers everywhere.



Sincerely,

Holli Long

Hello, TWO QUESTIONS: 1. WHY DID MY MOTHER JUST RECEIVE AN $80. PER MONTH CHANGE AND INCREASE IN HER ADVANTAGE MEDICARE BILL/PAYMENT? WE WERE TOLD FROM BIDEN THAT ADVANGAGE MEDICARE WAS NOT CHANGING FOR SENIORS TO TRUST OBAMA? IT IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING. 2. The mortgage companies who hold our mortgages are still commiting "fraud" (i.e., Bank of America), I am not accusing, I know first hand having worked there ... yet the regulations are allowing this.... even with the investigations, they are allowed to slide. Homeowner's are paying the price, they are not helping the people stuggling, instead they are increasing the bottom line in mortgages. WHEN WILL SOMETHING BE DONE ? I see people losing their homes every day and the call center people at BofA, and their affilliate companies, not helping people with re-conforming their mortgages, and they do NOT mail a copy of mortgages to homeowner's and these companies, instead of helping someone to NOT lose their home, are also forming AMC's (Appraisal Management Companies", i.e., Urban Lending Solutions, who works for Bof A so they can tell us what our homes are worth and they hold our mortgages ... then the call center people, when ANYONE calls gives the homeowner a run around CONSTANTLY AND IT TAKES ON AVERAGE OF 6-8 MONTHS TO RE-CONFIGURE A LOAN, THEN THEY HAVE A GOAL OF TACKING AT LEAST $8,000 TO $16,000 ON TO THE BOTTOM LINE OF THE MORTGAGE, OF ANYONE WHO HAS GOTTEN BEHIND. THEN THE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE CALL CENTERS AND REPRESENT BOFA, WILL TELL CLIENTS ONE TIME, THEY QUALIFY FOR A PROGRAM, THAT WILL HELP THEM LOWER THEIR PAYMENT, THEN NEXT TIME, TELL THE HOMEOWNER, "OH THAT PERSON AT BOFA MADE MISTAKE YOU DO NOT" ... IT IS ALL HORRIBLE, AND THEY DELIBERATLY HAVE A PLAN TO MAKE MORE MONEY. THEY ARE HURTING HOMEOWNERS ON A DAILY BASIS AND I SEE IT EVERY DAY, SO THAT THEY MAKE MORE MONEY.

To Michelle,

You have your own career, you are a mother and wife yet some people only associate you as the president's wife. How do you keep your own identity standing beside your husband?

Dear Mrs Obama,

I admire you greatly, and I am hopeful that your next four years will see you continuing with the great work you've been doing in the White House as First Lady.



I am sure that you have made huge sacrifices in you own career path to further your huaband's goals, and you have, I believe, provided a first-class model of how to do so with grace and style. (I write this as a working professional mom, and I know that balancing two careers is tricky)



I wonder what you see for your own career future after 2016?

Hello Mrs. Obama,



First of all I would like to say that your speech at the DNC was wonderful. I loved how you maintained your role as a wife and mother as well as the First Lady of our nation. I am a recovering Republican/conservative, and hearing you speak cemented my decision to move to the left. My question is: How difficult is it to deal, as a mother, with the insults and propaganda being thrown toward your family by the media at this time of year?

Hello Mrs. Obama'



You have a been a pioneer for military families. I am a navy wife who admins a community here as well as lives in military housing. Many service members are having the government remove them from service with little notice and in some cases nowhere to go. What can we do to combat this treatment of those who serve our country tirelessly for the freedoms that we enjoy?



Thank you for all you do

With all the negativity in the media, and the extreme and downright hateful views about your husband, how do you process all of that and continue on the path of good works, and protect your family from the effects of the negative messaging?
