My fellow Americans, It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve as First Lady of the United States.
I have been inspired by incredible Americans across our country who lift up our communities through their kindness and courage, goodness and grace.
The past four years have been unforgettable.
As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism, and determination.
I see the faces of brave young soldiers who have told me with pride in their eyes how much they love serving this country.
To every service member and to our incredible military families: You are heroes, and you will always be in my thoughts and prayers.
I think of all the members of law enforcement who greet us wherever we go.
At every hour of every day, they stand guard to keep our communities safe, and we are forever in their debt.
I have been moved by children I have visited in hospitals and foster care centers.
Even as they fight difficult illnesses or face challenges, they bring such a joy to everyone they meet.
