Michelle Obama visits Siouxland, Sioux City

4 Nov

Sometimes living in particular communities one feels like you live outside the mainstream of life. Interesting events occur of local interest but not necessarily national interest. But the state of Iowa in an election year becomes a destination that  during other times of the year and other times in life is just a flyover point somewhere down there. This year, it is one of the battleground states the pundits keep saying is bouncing back and forth between the Democratic and Republican parties like a volleyball. Which will actually bounce back and forth with the upcoming NAIA National Volleyball tournament to be held in Sioux City.  But within the last week, Michelle Obama visited Sioux City, stumping for her husband, President Barack Obama. Notwithstanding, I am always fascinated with history evolving before my eyes, no matter the party, but the personalities that we get to see. And recently I was able to photograph the First Lady’s visit.
