Michelle Obama Quote

I am desperate for change — now — not in 8 years or 12 years, but right now. We don't have time to wait. We need big change — not just the shifting of power among insiders. We need to change the game, because the game is broken. When I think about the country I want to give my children, it's not the world we have now. All I have to do is look into the faces of my children, and I realize how much work we need to do.
