The Day I Heard Obama Speak in Israel By Sarah Berrie

Having the incredible opportunity to see President Barack Obama in Jerusalem was a once in a lifetime event that I enjoyed every minute of.  I have never had the chance to see him or any presidential figure in the United States, and before this day I never could have imagined seeing him in Israel.  Words cannot express the excitement I felt as we approached Jerusalem and made our way into the convention center.  Although I have only been here for a few months I am falling in love with Israel and I feel connected with everything going on here.  My entire life I have always been concerned with the conflicts and dilemmas that Israel faces, and I strongly support the relationship that America has with Israel.  Hearing President Obama, the strongest political figure in America, here in Israel and the support and concern that he has for Israel was comforting and exciting.   It was even more exciting being completely surrounded by Israeli students and seeing their reaction and respect towards President Obama.  The atmosphere of the speech was incredible, as well as the way that President Obama really seemed to connect with the Israeli population throughout his speech.  Overall it was a fun and enjoyable experience that I will never forget. Thank you!
