How About Michelle Obama?

Michelle Obama! Michelle Obama gave a very stunning, inspiring, uplifting....speech last night at the Democratic Convention! The speech literally had me standing on my bed with my hands in the air screaming YES! She flawlessly painted the picture of her life struggles and triumphs.
