Keep your chin up, Hillary Clinton

Thank you Hillary Clinton! I know you were hesitant about entering the race. You looked around hoping a qualified individual would step forward. There were none, so thank you!

The responsibility you are accepting will hurt you in ways you already know. When you must order somebody into battle and there are casualties, the pain will be unbearable because of the woman you are.

The recriminations you get from people comes from the power you have to create, in my opinion, positive change. Also, there is a whole bunch of projection going around. The negative perception people voice about you comes from deep within their own hearts — nasty and disgusting displays that you do not reciprocate.

As you go forward, remember: There is one more person who cannot imagine the horror if you are not president.
