. . . Hillary because she is a woman.
. . . Hillary because her last name is Clinton.
. . . Hillary because she is a Democrat.
I voted for Hillary Clinton because she was the best candidate – in my opinion, I feel compelled to stress even though this is my blog and all opinions are my own. Hillary Clinton is intelligent, gracious, caring, open-minded and forward-thinking. She is also flawed (like all of us). She is an impassioned being (like most of us). She is concerned about the future of our planet and its people (as should we all be). And she represents a change within a system which perpetually rejects change, but I think she would have done her best to make a difference.
I’ve been fairly silent during this tumultuous election season and do not wish to engage in a heated argument with any of my Outlander followers and fans. I’ve respected everyone’s opinion and choice(s) and hope you will do the same. However, I was so moved by Hillary’s emotional concession speech this morning, I felt compelled to share my reaction.
I am both saddened and hopeful the leaders of our country will come together during the next four years and especially the next few months. The great divide must be narrowed, not widened. If you are happy with the outcome, be as gracious as President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump and all the other political leaders are striving to be. If you are unhappy with the outcome, you have a tougher road ahead but must also strive to be gracious, helpful and supportive of our government as a whole as they lead us into a new era.
In the face of this division, I am happy we will always have Outlander to bring and keep us together. Peace.
