Barack and Michelle Obama continue to be pillars of hope and inspiration. On Tuesday, the former president and first lady crashed a town hall meeting in Chicago via Zoom to share a special message with young people amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Young people have an especially important role to play — we need them at the table to truly move this country forward," Michelle captioned the clip on Instagram. "That's why I loved seeing these students from Chicago use their voices to move us forward."
Barack expressed similar sentiments, saying that now more than ever it's important for us to think about civics.
"We need young people like you to understand the power and the role that you have and play in continuing to move this country ahead not for us, but for you," Michelle added. If you're in need of a pick-me-up, watch Barack and Michelle's inspiring message above.
