I listened to Trump’s acceptance speech and Clinton’s concession speech. It’s easy to understand why she won the popular vote.
She spoke of unity and reminded us to not just respect but to cherish our practice of a peaceful change of leadership. She spoke to young girls, encouraging them to reach high and ensuring them there is nothing they can’t do. She inspired us to continue to fight for what we believe in, and not just every four years.
Her speech made me realize we haven’t totally lost. She has blazed the trail, and that trail is lined with promise.
