Michelle Obama’s last speech

I was never a fan on Barack Obama’s style of speaking. I thought Michelle was much better.

She has just given her last speech as First Lady, which was at times quite emotional.

A few key points:

“Being your First Lady has been the greatest honour of my life.”

“Immigrants are a proud US tradition.”

‘Religious diversity is an American tradition.’

Many immigrants to the US were escaping from religious persecution in Europe.

“Lead with hope and never fear.’

“Everybody has a place in America’s story.’
