Michelle Obama

  • « Il y a encore tant de choses que j'ignore au sujet de l'Amérique, de la vie, et de ce que l'avenir nous réserve. Mais je sais qui je suis. Mon père, Fraser, m'a appris à travailler dur, à rire souvent et à tenir parole. Ma mère, Marian, à penser par moi-même et à faire entendre ma voix. Tous les deux ensemble, dans notre petit appartement du quartier du South Side de Chicago, ils m'ont aidée à saisir ce qui faisait la valeur de notre histoire, de mon histoire, et plus largement de l'histoire de notre pays. Même quand elle est loin d'être belle et parfaite. Même quand la réalité se rappelle à vous plus que vous ne l'auriez souhaité. Votre histoire vous appartient, et elle vous appartiendra toujours. À vous de vous en emparer. »

Voilà quel est, à mes yeux, le chemin de notre devenir. » - Michelle Obama.

[...] On ne doit pas se souvenir de tout. Mais ce dont on se souvient est précieux. ».
