My fellow Americans, it has been the honour of my life to serve you. I wont stop; in fact, I will be right there with you, as a citizen, for all my days that remain.

Obama calls on citizens to have faith in the country.

I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change but in yours, he says.

“I am asking you to hold fast to that faith written into our founding documents; that idea whispered by slaves and abolitionists; that spirit sung by immigrants and homesteaders and those who marched for justice; that creed reaffirmed by those who planted flags from foreign battlefields to the surface of the moon; a creed at the core of every American whose story is not yet written

Yes We Can.
Yes We Did.
Yes We Can.

Obama thanks the crowd and is greeted by his family and the Bidens.
