Video from Michelle Obama's Keynote at the National Conference on Volunteering and Service

Michelle Obama delivered the keynote address to the National Conference on Volunteering and Service yesterday in San Francisco. Michelle Obama's message highlighted the importance of each of us doing our part- a message she carried in words and in deeds. For those who claim to be too busy to serve, the 1st family acts as an example- today, Michelle Obama helped build a playground in San Francisco before speaking at the conference... earlier this year, she helped plant a garden at the Whitehouse with students from a DC middle school (the harvests are donated to local food pantries)

Video of Michelle Obama's speech is available on the 2009 NCVS youtube channel. In my two favorite sections, Michelle Obama discusses her choice, and her husband's choice to serve:
