"Many of you work with kids just like Mister and Pete," the First Lady told an audience of educators. "You see them every day — kids struggling against heartbreaking odds in neighborhoods torn apart by poverty and hopelessness, surrounded by gangs and guns and drugs. You see this every day. But, see, this is the thing, the beauty of this movie — this movie isn't just about the challenges that kids like Mister and Peter are facing. And that's really why this movie was so powerful to me, because it's also about their courage."
