President Barack Obama (R) looks at his wife, first lady Michelle Obama (L), as she speaks during a reception in honor of International Womenï¿½s Day at the East Room of the White House March 8, 2010 in Washington, DC.
"She knew that when we give others the chance to fulfill their greatest potential, we all win."In 1962, Shriver started a day camp, known as Camp Shriver, specifically aimed at giving children with intellectual and developmental disabilities the opportunity to play with their peers and participate in sports. Senate Barack Obama (D-IL) (L) holding his daughter Malia with wife Michelle and youngest daughter Sasha (R) celebrate his victory with supporters over Repulican rival Alan Keyes November 2, 2004 in Chicago, Illinois.
Over time, the camp evolved into the Special Olympics organization. Obama was expected to easily defeat Keyes in this first ever senate race featuring two major-party African-American candidates.
Looking as elegant as ever in a black cutout gown, Obama opened up about Shriver -- who died in 2009 at the age of 88 -- and reflected on what made her a wonderful human being.

The late Eunice Kennedy Shriver was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on Wednesday for her legacy of creating and developing the Special Olympics and for being a champion of equality and inclusion.
To properly pay tribute to her memory, former First Lady Michelle Obama took the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to present the prestigious honor, and to share a few words about the impact Shriver had on the world.
