On July 21, Sasha Obama was included in all of her dad's Inauguration events along with sister, Malia, and mom, Michelle. However, the 11-year-old, not used to so much time in the spotlight all at once, has made it through a long weekend with today's culmination bringing on what is already a famous yawn.
As witnessed on CNN and while emitting a response that has already going viral, this particular First Kid yawn came during a long speech her father delivered. It was actually a ground-breaking speech that launched Barack Obama's second term as the President of the United States.
In fact, that yawn provided by Sasha Obama came when her dad was offering a moving yet ironic line, at least as far as his youngest daughter was concerned.
The words were, "No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people."
This may have been a yawning statement, at least for someone who studies math and science every school day and who still has to do her homework between appearances even if this is a time when her entire family is celebrating to the hilt. That means late nights and lots of costume changes, a daunting task even for a young lady who has lived a public life almost all of her life.
So, as Sasha Obama's yawn spirals into Internet history during her dad's Inauguration address, this First Daughter should be excused for the involuntary action. After all, she didn't volunteer for her current role. Her father did.
