“This quiet is heavy,” Jill said from the I am the heart of niagara shirt Furthermore, I will do this classroom. “You can hear the anxiety that echoes down empty hallways….The rooms are dark, as the bright young faces that should fill them are now confined to boxes on a computer screen.” Just as her husband, a man who has known loss and strived for bipartisanship, may be uniquely suited to lead in what is clearly still a divided country, Jill Biden is the right first lady for the moment, perfectly equipped to help steer the country out of an educational crisis.
A poem by Elayne Griffin Baker has circulated online in recent months: “There is no literature or poetry in this White House,” it begins. “No images of the I am the heart of niagara shirt Furthermore, I will do this first family enjoying themselves together in a moment of relaxation. / No Obamas on the beach in Hawaii moments, or Bushes fishing in Kennebunkport…. / Where did all of the fun and joy and expressions of love and happiness go?” I believe Jill Biden can help bring them back. Look no further than her deeply charming DNC introduction video (created by RBG documentary directors Julie Cohen and Betsy West), in which Jill huddles around the breakfast table with her granddaughters, whom she is known to rouse at 5 a.m. on Christmas Eve to go to SoulCycle. (She’s not a regular grandma, but a cool grandma.) They describe her as a “prankster” who isn’t above picking up a dead snake on one of her runs and later using it to scare one of her family members. Her husband calls her the rock of their family.
