"If your family doesn’t have much money, I want you to remember that in this country, plenty of folks, including me and my husband, we started out with very little," said First Lady Michelle Obama in her farewell speech yesterday. "Though with a lot of hard work and a good education, anything is possible, even becoming President. That’s what the American dream is all about." Mrs Obama also said that being First Lady "has been the greatest honor of my life." It was a very kind, encouraging, and emotional speech.
