First Lady dedicates 'healing' garden at children's hospital

First lady Melania Trump participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday to open the Bunny Mellon Healing Garden at Children's National Health System.

Inspiration for the children's hospital garden came from a patient whose last wish was to go outside, the hospital said. Biographies of every first lady since Rosalynn Carter adorn a hallway leading to the garden.

"It took so many kind and caring people focused on these very courageous and unbelievable children", she told the audience of donors, doctors and a few patients. Located on the 3rd floor roof, the garden will be a place where patients and their families can enjoy "fresh air and handsome views", the first lady said.

President John F. Kennedy asked Mellon, who passed away in 2014, to redesign the White House Rose Garden during a Cape Cod picnic.

Officially moving into the White House this summer at the end of the school year, she is considered a reluctant first lady who has been criticised for plagiarising Michelle Obama and for her heavy accent.

She wore her hair down in loose waves and completed the look with a pair of pointed white ad black patterned heels, which eaisly blended into the stylish scene. "Would I design it for him?"

"As an amateur, I questioned my ability to design a garden of such importance", she wrote.

Steelers take linebacker TJ Watt with 30th pick in draft
Quotable: "Early on when J.J. first started blowing up, I didn't know how to handle it, but now definitely I love it". Watt is asking Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown to treat his little brother, first-round pick T.J.

Reluctant to embrace her position during the early months of her husband's presidency, Melania has remained mostly out of the spotlight. "What gardener could resist?"

Donald Trump downplayed this incident, saying that what happened "was not booing like we all know it". In February, New York's police commissioner told Reuters that it was costing taxpayers between $127,000 and $308,000 per day to protect the Trump family.

Immigration is surely a hot button issue in President Donald Trump's America.

"She gave an answer, and she's cool", he said about his daughter.

"The children all seemed to take kindly to the First Lady, and were pictured laughing and giving her hugs as they sat around the crafts table", the Daily Mail reported.

She said, "It is therefore our duty to continue to shine the light on each miraculous victory achieved by women".
