Well done for fighting
You took a risk, you stood up in front of the whole world and that’s brave. Knowing that everyone would be picking holes in your womanhood, your past, your husband’s past and you still got up on stage.
You’re not perfect, but who is? Certainly not Donald.
It’s difficult to know how to explain injustice to young children but there are valuable lessons that my daughter can learn from this, they’re just not the ones I was hoping she might.
The world is not fair. The best person for the job doesn’t always get it. But it is vital that we still try and that she sees people like Hillary trying to become President. I hope what she remembers from this election is that there was a lady in a red dress. She was there, fighting and Mummy was willing her on.
Well done for not lowering your standards to his
Throughout the campaign, especially in the TV debates, you didn’t take the bait. You didn’t let him goad you with playground banter.
The media would never accept the awful behaviour from a woman the way they have accepted his, you knew that and you held your head high and stayed on message. You thought he was making his own bed, we all did.
Well done for accepting defeat beautifully
Your concession speech is a masterclass, gracefully delivered. Can you imagine the hoo-ha Donald would have made of his, enough said.
“Never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.”
You make us realise that all is not lost in defeat, that there are lessons to learn along the way.
“To all the women, especially the young women, who put their faith in this campaign and in me, I want you to know that nothing has made me prouder than to be your champion.”
Brilliant choice of words.
Well done Hillary, a champion effort.
