Michelle Obama says people worried about youth gun violence have to do more than simply tell children they care about the problem and then wind up "going to these funerals and mourning with these kids when there's still work to do."
Imagine students learning their ABCs while dancing, or memorizing multiplication tables while doing jumping jacks.
By the time Allyson Felix was done doing her part, her third gold medal of the Olympics was all but hanging around her neck.
Carmelita Jeter crossed the finish line pointing the baton at the clock showing a world record of 40.82 seconds Friday night as the United States won the women's Olympic 4x100-meter relay for the first time since 1996.
No more heartbreak for Allyson Felix. No more silver, either.
After leaving the most important decision of her career up to her persuasive mother, Brittney Reese knew there was only one place to start looking when it was time to celebrate her Olympic gold medal in the long jump.
Of course, the gold medal stays in Jamaica. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce wouldn't have it any other way.
Allyson Felix waited. And waited. What was just a few seconds seemed an eternity as she looked up from the track at the scoreboard and watched the names appear. Carmelita Jeter. Tianna Madison. Jeneba Tarmoh. Allyson Felix.
For 15-year-old Esther Stroy, it was more than the world's best summer vacation. It was the opportunity of a lifetime.
Jeneba Tarmoh conceded the final Olympic spot in the 100 meters rather than meet training partner Allyson Felix at the starting line to break a third-place tie.
Bobby Kersee is in favor of a runoff to break a 100-meter tie between his two sprinters, Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh. Just not now.
With water ponding on the track and the finish line in plain sight, 10,000-meter runner Galen Rupp waved to the crowd, smiled and stuck out his tongue.
Now that everyone knows which two races Allyson Felix will run, it's time to find out if Tyson Gay is fit enough to win even one.
Peaking for that most important of competitions is probably the hardest of all the phases of race preparation.
"If you guys remember just one thing from our time today, it's this: Although I am the first lady of the United States of America ... I am no different from you," she said.
"It's unbelievable," Felix said. "I think about how I ended in Beijing, just feeling discouraged there. Four years later to have all this happen, to really accomplish every goal that I set out, is such a blessing."
