Hadiya Was Me

"Hadiya was me, and I was her," the first lady said during an emotional plea for gun control at a Chicago event held to urge local leaders and businesses to help reduce gun violence. "But I got to grow up, and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School, and have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine."
