A Lovely Story About The American Dream

So many people were tweeting about Michelle Obama’s speech last night that I watched the video of it and, yeah: WHAT A SPEECH. I would say it rivals the president’s speech on the tarmac in Independence Day, or anything Aaron Sorkin has written for anyone. If you’re interested in a really good narrative of The American Dream delivered by a lady who almost made this cynic believe anything is possible, I recommend it. I mean, to be clear, I don’t buy any of the rhetoric that anyone is serving us. I think we’re really screwed. But this feels good to listen to. Full text available here.

We’re totally screwed but it feels good to feel good? Love Michelle for that.

For me, the best part of the night was Julian Castro’s speech. This quote, “In the end, the American dream is not a sprint or even a marathon, but a relay.” made me all goosebumpy.
