Love, Self

I'm still with her.

Thank you Hillary Rodham Clinton. Thank you for making the impossible, possible. Thank you for being a strong FEMALE leader. Thank you for giving hope and inspiration to young woman all around the world.

And thank you for running for President of the United States. 

Yes Donald Trump has been elected the 45th President of the United States. Yes many of us are devastated and feel defeated. 

Well don't get too down. 

If she's not rolling over and giving up, neither should we. Just because she lost the election, doesn't mean the fight is over. The fight for equal pay among men and women. The fight for affordable health care. The fight to end poverty. The fight for LGBT rights and to end discrimination against them, African Americans, Latinos, Muslims, and other races. The fight to end sexual assault across college campuses. 

There's still so much to fight for. Hillary Clinton will do her best to work with President Elect Trump and make these dreams a reality. 

Don't forget all the change she has already accomplished. She has been an inspiration to so many women who want to be in politics. Women who hold office like Catherine Cortez Masto, the first Latina woman to serve in the U.S. Senate, or Pramila Jayapal, the first Indian-American woman to be elected into the U.S. House of Representatives, or Kate Brown, the first openly gay woman to be elected Governor.

Huge accomplishments and inspirations for all the young girls who aspire to make a difference. 

As Hillary said in her concession speech, "The American dream is big enough for everyone. For people of all races, and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities. For everyone." 

Don't give up now. We're just getting started, and we'll shatter that glass ceiling together.
