Michelle Obama’s speech(writer) did a masterful job. I was excited. I was motivated. I was interested and engaged. She ignited a fire and kept it burning all week. She said something I believe set the tone for the entire convention and the party’s message.

“When they go low. We go high.” — Michelle Obama(‘s speech writer)

I won’t try to add anything else but leave these two parts that resonated with me.

How far we’ve come.

I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves — and I watch my daughters — two beautiful, intelligent, black young women — playing with their dogs on the White House lawn. And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters — and all our sons and daughters — now take for granted that a woman can be President of the United States.

Inaction loses.

So in this election, we cannot sit back and hope that everything works out for the best. We cannot afford to be tired, or frustrated, or cynical. No, hear me — between now and November, we need to do what we did eight years ago and four years ago: We need to knock on every door. We need to get out every vote. We need to pour every last ounce of our passion and our strength and our love for this country into electing Hillary Clinton as President of the United States of America.
