Michelle Obama caught everyone’s attention at the White House on Friday.
As she gave her final public remarks, the first lady become emotional when she said that “being your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life and I hope I’ve made you proud.”
“I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong,” Obama said. “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.”
Obama was wearing a long sleeve red dress with a cut out at the collar that one website is deeming “the ultimate power dress.”
