"We will rebuild. We will recover. And the United States of America will emerge stronger than before."
--President Obama, February 24, 2009
That's what President Obama said in his first address to Congress in 2009. Our nation was in midst of what we now know was the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Our economy was shrinking, our businesses were shedding jobs each month, and our auto industry had flatlined.
But through the years, the President has worked with the American people to rebuild and strengthen our economy, our security, and our leadership in the world. Each year, in every one of his State of the Union addresses, you can see the progress we've made together.
So -- to commemorate his final address this Tuesday -- we've put together something special:We've assembled all of the President's addresses to Congress on using Genius, adding line-by-line annotations that offer more context on specific proposals he made and a behind-the-scenes look at how these speeches came together.
Take a look:

In each year since 2009, the President's State of the Union addresses have bookmarked pivotal moments in the story of our nation: from expanding universal, affordable health care to securing the the most ambitious global agreement ever to combat climate change.
Check out each speech -- complete with videos, graphics, and stories from the staffers behind the policies.
Have thoughts on remarks? Share your thoughts and reactions with the White House right in the speech. Some submissions may be highlighted by the White House.
Then, make sure you RSVP to watch President Obama's final State of the Union speech next Tuesday at 9:00pm ET. You won't want to miss what the President has planned for the year ahead.

On Tuesday, my husband will deliver his seventh and final State of the Union address.
He'll be talking about making things better for you and your family right now -- and he'll also be sharing his vision for how, together we can make this country a better place for the next generation, and generations to come.
That's been his mission since the day he took office, and he'll be doing everything he can with every minute he has left as President to deliver on behalf of the American people.
This speech is for you, and we want to know you'll be there watching.
Say you'll join me and millions of other Americans on Tuesday to watch the State of the Union.
Each year, I have the honor of attending this address with a few of the many Americans who have inspired Barack -- and this year is no exception.
Braeden Mannering, after attending the White House Kids' "State Dinner," started his own nonprofit to provide healthy food to homeless and low-income individuals in his community. Formerly homeless Navy veteran Cindy Dias works with Veterans Village, a non-profit that has answered our Joining Forces call to End Veterans' Homelessness in Las Vegas.
Oscar Vasquez, an immigrant from Mexico, fought for the right to become an American citizen so that he could fulfill his dream of joining the U.S. Army. Refaai Hamo, a scientist and cancer survivor, fled Syria with his family hoping to "make a lasting contribution to humanity."
You can see all the inspiring people who will be joining me. Read their stories and watch them receive their invitations.
Watch the guests get invited to the State of the Union
That kind of passion and perseverance are at the heart of this great country. And while we have made so much progress, there's so much more left to do to ensure all Americans have the opportunities they deserve to get ahead. That's what my husband will be talking about on Tuesday. So let us know you'll be watching.
RSVP here on Facebook and then check out on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET to watch the President's final address to the nation.
Thanks so much,
First Lady Michelle Obama
