Very warm & heartfelt congratulations to Michelle who has grown up a hero and celebrity under a bright media spotlight and has never disappointed. She has been the perfect role model for asian girls, including 2010 Olympic Gold medalist Kim Yu-na, for nearly 2 decades.

God knows we need good leaders and role models in leadership everywhere today. Public life is certainly over-populated with idiots and low-lifes (trying to use polite words).

Will always be a fan :) she is so admirable. I hope future generations of young girls will have the opportunity and blessing to look up to as fantastic a role model as I did growing up. Even her smile alone is something to learn from but her hard work and dedication in everything she does are truly extraordinary.

Continuing the Michelle Kwan lovefest - for those who don't know Michelle's artistry, athleticism and emotive power on the ice, here are a couple of the greatest figure skating programs of all time:

Lyrics to "Fields Of Gold"

You'll remember me when the west wind moves

Among the fields of barley

You can tell the sun in his jealous sky

We walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile

Among the fields of barley

In his arms she fell as her hair came down

Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me will you be my love

Among the fields of barley?

You can tell the sun in his jealous sky

We walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly

And there have been some that I've broken

But I swear in the days still left

We will walk in fields of gold

We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days

Among the fields of barley

See the children run as the sun goes down

As you lie in fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves

Among the fields of barley

You can tell the sun in his jealous sky

When we walked in fields of gold

When we walked in fields of gold

When we walked in fields of gold

(written by Sting)

Do yourself a favor, watch this video - Eva Cassidy singing Sting's lyrics and Michelle Kwan skating is about as close to the Eternal as us mortals can get.

This is the type of person that little girls should be looking up to! She really is a great role model, being great at both athletics and academics. The world does not need young girls who grow up to become the main star of a sex tape. -_-
