Hours before Election Day, US president Barack Obama rallied a crowd in the state of New Hampshire and retold a powerful story from his campaign trail in 2008 to show that every vote matters.
It’s been retweeted and favourited thousands of times already, and you can watch it here.
"One voice can change a room, a city, a country, the world"
This Obama riff today got audience all teary-watch/share it with a young voter pic.twitter.com/jZySD0pcvv— Khanoisseur 🐶🤦🏻♂️🌎 (@Khanoisseur) November 8, 2016
Obama tells the story of a rainy, miserable campaign stop in Greenwood, South Carolina, where he met with a few little-enthused supporters. Then one woman arrived who led the small group in a chant: “Fired up, ready to go!”
He explained the moral of the story to be this: “It just goes to show you that one voice can change a room, and if it can change a room it can change a city, and if it can change a city it can change a state, and if it can change a state it can change a nation, and if it can change a nation it can change the world.”
Obama signs off his story by saying: “Let’s elect Hillary Clinton!”
