First Lady Michelle Obama’s Full Speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention

This week the first lady gave a speech at the DNC in Philadelphia that many are saying will be one for the ages. It was indeed rousing and powerful. Particularly hard hitting for me was when she talked about living in a house that slaves built. This has been a theme in Obama’s life at least since he wrote the Audacity of Hope. He takes the words ‘a more perfect union’ and translates that into meaning we need to continue perfecting our Union. There have been challenges and setbacks along the way, but the highest ideals of the Constitution, many which would have been impossible for this nation’s founders to imagine, are slowly being realized.

Let’s stop Trump. We must not go back.
