The story behind the woman
In September 2010, Velma Hart, an ordinary American citizen and then chief financial officer for the veterans group AMVETS, was among a roomful of business people pressing President Obama for answers at a televised town hall in Washington sponsored by CNBC.
"I am exhausted…and deeply disappointed with where we are right now. And I thought, while it wouldn't be in a great measure, I would feel it in some small measure. I'm a mother. I'm a wife. I'm an American veteran, and I'm one of your middle-class Americans. And, quite frankly, I'm exhausted."
Since that brave moment, Velma Hart has been on the move for months being interviewed by numerous news media outlets and radio talk shows. With hundreds of supporters following her on Twitter and Facebook and crowning her as the “voice of ordinary American people”, Velma accepted this new role – speaking out on issues surrounding education, veteran affairs, politics, finances and personal development.
Using her God-given gifts, Velma decided she wanted to continue meeting and talking with others, like her, in a way that would allow the millions of ordinary people around the world to benefit from the much needed dialogue on the issues most important to them. With the help of a devoted team and the support of Velma’s family and friends, VelmaRHart.com and her debut blog, The Hart of the Matter was launched.
