In a video posted to YouTube, President Barack Obama delivers a truly inspirational speech to the young people who devoted their time to helping him win re-election. Obama tells the young volunteers about coming to Chicago at the age of 25, committed to making a difference but not sure how. The President says his experience as a community organizer helped make him a man. "When I come here and I look at all of you, what comes to mind is not that you guys actually remind me of myself, it’s the fact that you are so much better than I was in so many ways." 

"You’re just starting. Whatever good we do over the next four years will pale in comparison to what you guys end up accomplishing for years and years to come.”

Watch the President tear up below.
