Comments from Michelle Obama

Today, Michelle Obama said these meaningful words:
What we've learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And for the first time in my adult life, I'm proud of my country. Not just because Barack has done well, but because people are hungry for change and I have been desperate to see our country moving in that direction. And just not feeling so alone in my frustration and disappointment. I have seen people who are hungry to be unified around some basic common issues; and it has made me proud.

I feel privileged to be a part of even witnessing this. Traveling around states all over this country and that there is more that unites us than divides us. That the struggles of a farmer in Iowa are no different than what's happening on the South side in Chicago. That people are feeling the same pain and wanting the same things for their families.

Here's a clip of that portion of her speech.
