Y’all there are moments where your soul is set on fire and you experience true inspiration. That moment happened last night for me when I watched the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama speak at the Democratic National Convention. By the end of her speech, I had goosebumps and let’s just say I (along with many others) am hoping that she runs for President in the near future.
A few of my favorite lines from her speech:
“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves — and I watch my daughters — two beautiful, intelligent, black young women — playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters — and all our sons and daughters — now take for granted that a woman can be President of the United States.”
“we explain that when someone is cruel, or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level — no, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.”
“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.”
In case you missed it last night or need some morning inspiration and invigoration, listen below!
