    This is BEAUTIFUL!!
    I m sure Mrs. Nixon has a lot of stories to tell. I wish I could meet her.
    I'm so happy to see that she has lived to see a black man become president of the US. Change has come!.

    Tears came to my eyes as President Obama spoke so eloquently about Mrs. Cooper. I only wish my mother and father had lived to see this historical day in America. I am so proud to be an American. May God bless and keep you Mrs. Cooper.
