Denise Fisher attended President Barack Obama’s speech at the University of Nebraska Omaha’s Baxter Arena.
She explains why she wanted to be there for the presidential visit.
"The opportunity to see the president, first and foremost, just knowing that he was coming and seeing that he was celebrating Omaha is big. But the disparity that comes with Omaha, I wish we could address that. The other part of it is, as a Nebraskan - I'm originally a Tennesseean, but now as a Nebraskan to be able to come and see my leader is huge for me," she said.
After the president's remarks, Fisher shared her reaction.
"I thought it was amazing. The energy was unreal. You could feel it in the air. Just the fact he acknowledged the greatness the we've done as a city, as a country, it was amazing," she said.

"His plan to start in Omaha after his State of the Union was great. He spoke for 45 minutes. Makes me proud to be an Omahan. Say what you will about this presidency, but he's still just a person," wrote Sean. B.
