I have to admit that watching this DVD made me cry as I watched Obama's defining moments as President of the United States. This DVD shows how powerful and how heartfelt his words were, before he became President and during his eight years as President. In the beginning, his use of powerful words is compared to Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. All three inspirational men used words in their speeches that moved people. I also cried when Barack Obama became President, but they were happy tears. This DVD shows Barack Obama and how his powerful speeches were filled with hope and unity. He often tells a story. I really enjoyed watching some of his most powerful speeches that are included in this documentary. The narration is so engaging. I enjoyed learning about his speechwriters and how seriously Barack Obama took his words. He is a true inspiration and one of my favorite Presidents. This show made me realize how much I wish he was still the President. He is truly missed! I give this DVD 5 stars out of 5 stars because it is entertaining and very powerful. I recommend for ages 12 through 18 years old as well as adults. Reviewed by Denise B., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
Barack Obama launched into our national consciousness at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and ever since, he's delivered messages of patriotism, unity, and hope through the power of words. Interviews with eminent historians and key figures in his writing process give rare insights into these iconic speeches, as well as the Obama presidency and the man himself.
