It was a long day! Poor Sasha, 11, innocently yawned during one of the most important moments of her father’s life, and now the internet is abuzz with the video and pic! See it below.
Almost a million people in the audience and hundreds of cameras couldn’t stop a yawn slipping out of Sasha Obama! It happened while she was seated next to sis Malia, 14, and mom Michelle, while Dad, President Barack Obama was giving his second Inaugural address.
Obama’s inaugural address touched on many controversial issues, including health care, climate change, gay rights, foreign policy and more:
Excerpts From Obama’s Inauguration Speech
“We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms.”
“We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths — that all of us are created equal — is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.
“Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm.That is our generation’s task, to make these works, these rights, these values of life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness real for every American. Being true to our founding documents does not require us to agree on every contour of life. It does not mean we all define liberty in exactly the same way or follow the same precise path to happiness Progress does not compel us to settle century’s long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time.”
Watch the now-famous yawn right here:
