Who Run The World? Michelle Obama Gives a Heartfelt Speech

On Monday night during the Democratic National Convention, the First Lady gave the most honest, sincere, authentic speech ever. Michelle Obama covered  her time at the White House, her reasons on why you should elect Hilary as your next president, and why your vote matters. Here are a few highlights from her speech. 

On realizing their life would be changed, once Obama was elected: 

"I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black SUVs with all those men with guns. And with all their little faces pressed up against the window, and the only thing I could think was, 'What have we done?'. That moment, I realized that our time in the White House would form the foundation of who they would become. And how well we manage this experience could truly make or break them."

On what she's looking forward, to with our next President: 

"I want a president who will teach our children that everyone in this country matters. A president who truly believes in the vision that our founders put forth all those years ago, that we are all created equal. Each a beloved part of the great American story. And when crisis hits, we don't turn against each other. No, we listen to each other. We lean on each other because we are always stronger together.”

On how far America has come:

“I wake up every morning in a house built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful and intelligent black women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn,” Obama said. “And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters, and all our sons and daughters, can take for granted that a woman can become president of the United States.”

On making America great, again:

“Don’t ever let anyone tell you that this country isn’t great, that somehow we need to make America great again, because right now this is the greatest country on Earth,” she said. “And as my daughters prepare to set out into the world I want the leader who is worthy of that truth.”

She received a well deserved standing ovation. View the full speech below:
