In the early hours of today, the former first lady took to her Instagram page to celebrate all medical workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in honor of National Doctors Day.
Michelle’s appreciation post came days after she revealed her family’s daily routine amid the quarantine period.
Michelle shared a heartfelt video of two doctors, who she named as Dr. Francois and Dr. Robinson in the caption, rendering a medley that assured everyone that everything was going to be alright.
The medics were dressed in their scrubs as they sang their hearts out. In the accompanying caption, Michelle said “a huge thanks” to the health personnel for putting their lives on the line.
The “Becoming” author then went on to explain that over the past weeks, she had been brooding on different ways in which people can inspire others regardless of the distance. She eventually settled for the art of storytelling and explained her decision, saying:
“One place to start: sharing our stories, especially those stories about the many folks out there saving lives and working to keep us safe.”
Mrs Obama ended the post encouraging her 37.5 million followers to go to the comments section and leave a story about a health worker who helped their lives.
CNN noted that Michelle’s appreciation post came days after she revealed her family’s daily routine amid the quarantine period.
As seen in the televised phone call, which was shared on her friend, Ellen DeGeneres’ Twitter page saw Michelle explaining that her daughters, Malia and Sasha, are busy having online classes in their rooms.
She and Barack have kept busy doing conference calls alongside “a little Netflix and chilling.”
Aside from all the fun and relaxation, Michelle noted that the isolation has caused her family to “continue to sit down with each other, have real conversations, and really ask questions.”
Despite being stuck indoors, Michelle never fails to spread love to the world at large as another CNN article revealed that the 56-year-old took to her Instagram last week to share advice to people on how to deal with being indoors.
She suggested that people should volunteer with a food distribution program, pick up groceries for people at risk and help small businesses.
Vogue Magazine notes that although Michelle left her position as the First Lady of the United States about three years ago, she continues to use her voice to empower women all over the world.
