First Lady needs to think positive

I understand Michelle Obama is ranting about slavery. Would someone remind her that it was fellow Africans that sold their people into slavery? Joseph in the Old Testament was also sold into slavery — by his brothers. He, too, ended up living in “The Big House” with a high government position. Rather than seeking division and nurturing old wounds, he forgave those involved and stated “what men meant for ill God used for good.” Perhaps Michelle should focus on the positive. She certainly is in a better place than sitting in a mud hut in Africa. Patricia Maddox, Auburn
