The FLOTUS Michelle Obama is perfection covering "The Greats" issue of the New York Times Magazine. In the special issue, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Gloria Steinem, Jon Meacham, and Rashida Jones write personal thank-you notes to First Lady Obama, and we're just not equipped to deal with all of our feels. "You can dance with Ellen and also fearlessly remind people, on live television, of the reality of your position: 'I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves...'," Jones writes. "Michelle Obama will have her own legacy, separate from her husband’s. And it will be that she was the first first lady to show women that they don’t have to choose. That it’s okay to be everything." Feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie writes, "All over America, black women were still, their eyes watching a form of God, because she represented their image writ large in the world." Read everyone's sweet sentiments for FLOTUS here, and grab a tissue.
