Michelle Obama extends a kind gesture to slain teen Hadiya Pendleton's family.
Michelle Obama has invited Hadiya Pendleton’s family to attend the Annual White House Easter Egg Roll on April 1, according to the Chicago-Sun Times. The slain teen’s mother, Cleopatra Cowley-Pendleton and her 10-year-old son, Nathaniel, plan to attend the holiday celebration in Washington, D.C.
The Obamas have grown close to the Pendleton family, as 15-year-old Hadiya performed at the President’s inaugaral celebration only days prior to her murder. The First Lady attended Hadiya’s funeral this past February and President Obama even spoke about the unfortunate events in his State of the Union address last month.
