Michelle Obama Causes Tears With Poignant Speech On Investing In Our Children's Future

| Filed under: PolitikInspirationMichelle ObamaEducational

We have NEVER been more in love with a lady (besides those in our family LOLz) than we are RIGHT NOW with Michelle Obama after watching her inspiring, heart breaking, poignant speech addressing youth violence and the importance of investing in our children's future.

Open you ears, minds and hearts to the FLOTUS (above)!

Among the MANY important points that Mrs. Obama makes, she emphasizes:

"[success is not based] on genetics, or pedigree, or good luck — it's opportunity,"

Michelle also uses personal experience, abstract examples based on all too real situations, and the harrowing story of Hadiya Pendleton to urge the citizens of the United States — especially those with the means to create opportunities — to embrace, encourage, and provide for our nation's youth. ALL of them.

Oh! Shivers!

    Good speech, good performance, but it's all bull shit
    What is the limit to investing in the children ?
    Lets start holding parents accountable
    As for opportunity, Chicago spends over $13,000a year for each student
    Teachers make $75,000 per year
    Administrators $120,000 per year

    And Chicago schools suck ,the teachers union stick by bad teachers, nothing will change
    until we have good teachers, stronger family values, stricter enforced codes
    Chicago with the toughest gun laws in the country, has the higest murder rate
    Rahm Emmanuel sits by, while the city sinks

    I love Mrs Obama so much! She's such a fantastic woman and a great First Lady. I really hope she can make a difference for the sake of those kids in Chicago and other communities plagued by violence.
    Her speech was so moving I found myself in tears.
