A Message of Hope for Africa and the World by US First Lady Michelle Obama

US First Lady Michelle Obama Inspires!

A Message of Hope and Inspiration

First of the United States of America, Lady Michelle Obama visits Africa and delivers the keynote address to a U.S.-sponsored Young African Women Leaders Forum from Regina Mundi Church in Soweto, Johannesburg.  The message goes beyond inspiring young African women leaders, it is packed with hope and inspiration ALL people in ALL places can use everyday.   The people of the United States of America are celebrating their independence today and there is a part in this video (41min mark) that reminds us how to celebrate moving forward.  I encourage you to watch the complete video with others you care about.

Kennedy
