You have taught me to rise up, to know myself true to my skin color, true to my sexuality, true to my religion, my birthplace, my mother country.
You have taught me that a presidency is only good if you make it so. If you believe in the good of the American people and give them the means to be their best selves, and that is what makes you great.
