Watch Video Of What Michelle Obama Told Young Americans During An Event To Celebrate High School Counselors At The White House
Speaking very emotionally, Mr Obama said; “I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong,” “So don’t be afraid. You hear me, young people? Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourself with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of you boundless promise. Lead by example with hope—never fear.”
Speaking to immigrants who were not born in America, she said, "If you or your parents are immigrants, you are part of a proud American tradition." On "diversity" of faith, race and heritage, she added, "that is not a threat to who we are, it makes us who we are. Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don't matter, or like you don't have a place in our American story. Because, you do. And you have a right to be exactly who you are."
Mr Obama busted into tears at the end of her speech and said, "Being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life and I hope I've made you proud."
