Americans Are Like Children – level 2
Michelle Obama gave her last interview as the US First Lady. She reflected on the Obama Administration’s legacy.
Michelle said that children respond to problems like their parents. She gave an example of a toddler. When it gets hurt, it looks at its parents to see if it is hurt. If the parents are not upset, it is not upset.
Michelle said that Barack Obama was the parent to the USA. In difficult times, he would say that everything would be OK, and that Americans should look to the future.
Difficult words: legacy (how people remember things), respond (react), toddler (a young child who is just beginning to walk).
