Ellen DeGeneres Gets Recognized For The Amazing Person She Is

And she doesn't say anything... She just gets teary-eyed. 

The video of Ellen DeGeneres getting her Presidential Medal of Freedom is so adorable.

The speaker notes that Ellen helps change the minds of Americans on equality, and that a "single individual can make the world a more fun, more open, more loving place, so long as we just keep swimming," quoting her famous line from Finding Nemo.

We love you, Ellen!
