While all some of us are still shocked about the US election results, a few of us are taking solace in her concession speech. Laced with gratitude, encouragement, faith and love, Hillary’s speech was a warrior’s song and spoke to men, women, young and old across the world.
Here are some takeaways from her concession speech we love.
“I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling, but someday, someone will, and hopefully sooner than we might think right now.”
“My friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary and lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do”
For Young Girls
“And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and to achieve your own dreams.”
To The Women
“To all the women and 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”
Of Failures and Success
“I’ve had successes and I’ve had setbacks. Sometimes, really painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public, and political careers—you will have successes and setbacks too”
“This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it”.
Hillary Clinton may not have won the elections, but she remains a symbol of hope to all women. She remains the actualization of what women can achieve if they tried. She remains a hero to all ambitious girls and women the world over.
