Like myself, President Obama is the father of two daughters. He understands the obstacles that they face as women, but he also understands the emergency of the state of young black men in America.
Honor your daughters. They are honorable.
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
I know this president. And I can tell you that he cares deeply about the next generation of young women in this country – his daughters, and everyone’s daughters. President Obama had the courage to stand with Sandra Fluke. Without hesitation, he defended her right to tell her story.
Four of my children are daughters, and I’ve watched them devote themselves to reading books about how little girls learn to become women – how they learn to deal with boys and men, and the different hurdles females have to go over.

I want education for the sons and the daughters of all the extremists, especially the Taliban.
I say ‘I love you’ to my daughters every day.
Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They came through you but not from you and though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
