100Days/100Voices: What has changed for kids and families in the first 100 days?

To mark the first 100 days of the Obama Administration, the Annie E. Casey Foundation invited concerned citizens speak up and tell us – in 100 words or less, or with a video clip lasting no more than two minutes – After 100 days of the Obama Administration, are kids and families better off? Why or why not? What should be next on the agenda?

We're sharing selected photos, videos and emails collected through the campaign and promoting them throughout the Web. The campaign is designed as the start of a national conversation; we hope the discussion on progress made for kids and families will continue and remain part of the national agenda.

  • Submit your own 100 words and a photo or video.
  • Help us spread the word through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
  • See the terms of our campaign.

I am so proud of President Barack Hussein Obama, our first African American president. He has not only helped children and their parents with his health insurance, education, and economic changes but he, First Lady Michelle, and their daughters are a wonderful role models for all. As very busy parents juggling the world's needs, they take time and are dedicated to their daughters. Their daughters are happy, well behaved and smart little girls. I thank the Obamas for showing it is possible to raise children today that are not an embarrassment to and shame of our nation.
