As the days go by and we inch closer and closer to Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20th, it’s time for the Obama’s to say goodbye to the White House. Over the past 8 years there have been many ups and downs for the American people under Barrack Obama, but one thing we can say is both Barrack and Michelle have been two of the most charismatic figures we’ve ever seen lead America.
Now that it’s time to say goodbye and watch the Obama family move on to the next chapter in their lives, the soon-to-be-former First Lady, Michelle Obama, made an emotional final speech to the American people. She focused on America’s youth, students and the future leaders of America:
“I want our young people to know that they matter. That they belong. So don’t be afraid—you hear me, young people, don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example with hope, never fear. And know that I will be with you, rooting for you and working to support you for the rest of my life…Being your First Lady has been the greatest honour of my life, and I hope I’ve made you proud.”
She speaks of hope and the strides that the country has made in nearly a decade that the Obama’s have been in the White House. She spoke to the different religions that have been tested in recent months and years and reminded them that they belong, and it’s their country too.
Michelle has been a strong and resilient woman—the kind of woman that the young people, the children of tomorrow, can look up to.
I’m sure it’s not the last time we will hear from the Obamas, but we wish them the best in whatever comes next. And who knows, maybe we might see another President Obama in the future, but for now we say thank you and best wishes.
