Hillary Clinton’s Defeat
Earlier this week It was announced that Donald J. Trump has won the presidential election. Thereafter the announcement of Trumps victorious win, many American citizens were completely appalled with disgust and utter defeat by this unforeseen historical moment in American history; causing further displaced emotions between American citizens.
Though, Trumps opponent Senator Hillary Clinton, has demonstrated her grace eliciting honesty and integrity as the loosing candidate. Wednesday October 9, 2016 Clinton concisely engaged her audience during her concession speech. Clinton says:
“I’m not going to sugarcoat it: These have been very, very tough days,” Clinton said. “This is a tough time for our country. I think we have seen how people have been reacting to the events of this election and I know we have got to be reaching out to each other to keep it clear in our own minds that what we did is so important. It looks like we are on the path to winning the popular vote, and that says volumes about the importance of your work and the lasting impact it will have.”
Frederick Douglas once said: “A battle lost or won is easily described, understood, and appreciated, but the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation, to appreciate it.” It’s undeniable that Hillary Clinton has embodied this statement, allowing her loss to comprise her all the while giving American citizens gentle human transparency and life lessons about defeat.
Clinton has invited everyone whose devastated about the loss to restore themselves. “Take your dogs for a walk,” she said, “if you have dogs.”
