I would like to wish Let's Move!, First Lady Michelle Obama's initiative dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation, a very happy second birthday.
Click on the following webpages and read the song lyrics below and you will see how localized, fun energy balance messages and activities can inspire not only 14,000 students in Iowa gathered with Mrs. Obama, but also students throughout Mexico: http://amigodemi.com.mx/videos.php and
“Don’t Stop” by Amigo de Mí
After all, you will know
And you won’t regret
Having lived this experience
Feel your body working
Your muscles make you move
Blood runs through your veins
Action is always there!
And it gets better when you share it
That’s why we tell you…
…from the bottom of our hearts
You know you have the strength
Together we will both win!
The closing words on the video that accompanies this song are “Inicia tu movimiento,” or, when translated into English, are “Start your move!”
Happy 2nd birthday, Let’s Move! May we all join together now to “Start our Move!”
