An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
 
In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.
 
In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.
The earth cries out, shedding tears of blood. She weeps as she dies a slow and painful death. This is a story of how the earth died and mankind fella story of chaos and corruption, pain and poverty, death and destruction. Men turn on each other. Moods change but not for the better. Hope and faith give way to anger and hate. The will to survive, to live, to hopeall these will end. Love may be found in the chaos, but it will be constantly ripped apart by the need to survive and to save others. A financial crisis set in. Taxes went up, and the price of goods rose. Many people lost their jobs because employers could not afford to keep them on. Banks began to feel the strain, and then one by one, they closed and fell. Stock markets crumbled, and shares plummeted. People could not afford their rent or mortgage, and soon they were thrown out onto the streets. Poverty rates rose. The small banks went first, but it was not long before the larger ones followed suit, and the United Kingdom went effectively bankrupt. This set off a chain reaction across Europe, and the rest of the world until all countries suffered the same fate. As a consequence, war broke outbut not between nations. It was man against man out of anger and hate and a need to protect what little each had left. Looting ran rampant. Soon survival of the fittest became the rule. The terminally ill went first; they were already weak. The prisons that held the worst of mankind were soon broken open, setting sinners free from their chains and the high walls that once kept citizens safe. The army was sent in to maintain order. The days got longer and hotter. All food and drinks were seized, and rationinglike that introduced during World War IIbecame the rule in the major towns and cities. The people were under siege by gangs, looters, and the army as well. People waited desperately for those who brought on this misery to find the answer and restore normality. They went down on their knees, prayed for answers, and begged for forgiveness, but no help came, and no answers were given. Those in power hid away, not wanting to be seen or heard as they grappled with their mistakes. The air was thick with death. Many lives were lost through struggle, famine, and disease. Families were torn apart through loss. The balance was tipping. Those who would never steal took what they needed; those who once believed in doing the right thing did the unthinkable to survive and protect their own. Milanda, the daughter of a soldier, was taught from a young age how to be strong, survive, and look after herself. Yet she was kind and caring, a writer of stories. Damien was an ambitious young reporter who travelled the world, looking at life through a camera, hoping to find that one story that would be his big break and bring him fame and fortune. He uncovered a high-level case of deceit and corruption but was persuaded to suppress the scandal for a substantial payoff. Should he have allowed himself to be bought? This was a question that constantly troubled him, darkening his mood and his general demeanor.
