Hillary Clinton

While I wouldn't have voted for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Hillary's desire and effort to become president were more than evident throughout many years. This is why watching her watch her opponent once again become president was brutal. It wasn't political sentiment; only that as a fellow human being I felt that moment in my gut. I was there with her for a moment, and it was tough. Nevertheless, assisting both the Oath and Luncheon were gracious moves that no doubt took every once of strength she could muster.

I don't share all her values and principles (I do very much share her desire to uplift communities and neglected areas of government), but I recognize that she is a strong, intelligent person who has a clear vision of what government should be. And while I don't always agree with her vision and focus, I realize it is not easy to achieve that level of clarity. Neither could I deny the impact she had on me during her time as First Lady. I was a teen who loved history and politics and she was quite impressive to me. She stood out, and we all noticed her.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" Ecclesiastes 3:1.

Thank you for helping me want to be strong and brave like you, Mrs. Clinton. And, yesterday, gracious as well.
