MELANIA’S MOMENT: First Lady Unveils ‘Be Best’ Campaign for Children
First Lady Melania Trump officially announced her new campaign to help America’s youth face critical issues earlier Monday; unveiling her ‘Be Best’ initiative during a ceremony at the White House.
Mrs. Trump outlined her new proposals during an address from the Rose Garden, where she discussed her ongoing campaign to help promote the “physical, social, and emotional” health of children.
“It concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and often times turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction, or even suicide,” Trump said. “I feel strongly that as adults we can and should be best at educating our children about a healthy and balanced life.”
President Trump was on hand for the event and signed a ‘Be Best’ proclamation, marking May 7th as ‘Be Best Day.’
“When children learn positive online behaviors early on, social media can be used in productive ways and can affect positive change,” she concluded. “I do believe that children should be both seen and heard, and it is our responsibility as adults to educate and remind them that when they are using their voices — whether verbally or online — they must choose their words wisely and speak with respect and compassion.”
