First Lady Michelle Obama
On Monday night, First Lady Michelle Obama delivered an incredible speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
There were several epic moments throughout FLOTUS’ speech that made me stand up and stomp my feet like Ms. Shirleen and other moments that left tears rolling down my face.
One of those moments was when the First Lady said:
That is the story of this country, the story that has brought me to this stage tonight, the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.
And I watch my daughters, two beautiful intelligent black young women, play with the dog on the White House lawn.
President Barack Obama took to Twitter to praise his “incredible” wife.
Incredible speech by an incredible woman. Couldn't be more proud & our country has been blessed to have her as FLOTUS. I love you, Michelle.
