Barack Obama welled up as he thanked Michelle Obama for the unconditional and unparalleled love and support he received from her.
When Barack Obama got elected in 2008, the world saw an era of a super-cool President of the nuclear superpower managing crisis after crisis with an elan and restraint befitting a President. During his two terms, he made the healthcare affordable for the common man, successfully restrained unstable nuclear nations, and created many jobs.
He is the first Black President in the history of USA. The nation lost a chance to see it’s first woman president, but that is a futile discussion now. As he stepped down, Obama gave his farewell speech at Chicago recently. Among other things, he did not fail to talk about his wife, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, a lawyer, writer, the First black First lady of the USA and the mother to his two daughters.
Michelle has been a part of Barack Obama’s political journey right from the start. I seldom talk about relationship goals, but when I do, I talk about this couple. Not only are they look committed even after 25 years of being together, you can tell from their body language that they are one soul!
So it is not surprise that President Barack Obama welled up as he started talking about Michelle. And as he uttered her name, the crowd gave her a standing ovation that lasted well over a minute. In his own words,
“Michelle – for the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend. You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.”
Talking about his children, he continued,
“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad. “
