Tonight, President Barack Obama returned to his adopted hometown of Chicago to give his presidential farewell speech after serving two terms in office. Obama focused on the themes of hope and change that first helped him to get elected eight years ago. Watch Obama’s full speech above in which he concludes by calling on citizens to have faith in the country, stating:

“I am asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about change – but in yours. 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.”
