Today, the President and First Lady joined Americans across the country in a day of service to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at Naylor Road Family Shelter – the new home of “Malia and Sasha's Castle,” the playset which sat outside the Oval Office for eight years.

"I want our young people to know that they matter, that they belong. So don’t be afraid – you hear me, young people? Don’t be afraid. Be focused.  Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education, then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise." -The First Lady today in her final remarks at the @WhiteHouse.

"Excellence is the most powerful answers you can give to the doubters and the haters. It's also the most powerful thing you can do for yourself, because the process of striving and struggling and pushing yourself to new heights - that's how you make yourself stronger and smarter and able to make a difference for others." —The First Lady to the 2016 graduates of @JacksonStateU. This Friday the First Lady will celebrate the school counselors who help students across the country #ReachHigher. Tune in for Mrs. Obama's final speech at 11AM ET at wh.gov/live.

"Every day, I try my best to pass down to my girls that same love and that same dreaming spirit that Marian and Fraser Robinson passed down to me – that same love and spirit that your ancestors passed down to all of you and that you will pass on to your own children and grandchildren. Because in the end, I believe that that is the true path of history in this country – it is long and it is winding and it can be very painful.  But ultimately, it flows in the direction of hope, dignity, and justice because of people like you who stand up for your values, who stay true to who you are and where you’ve come from and who work every day to share the blessings you’ve had with others." —The First Lady celebrating the #NativeYouth of New Mexico's Santa Fe Indian School this past spring. This Friday the First Lady will celebrate the school counselors who help students across the country #ReachHigher. Tune in for Mrs. Obama's final speech at 11AM ET at wh.gov/live.
