Quote from Hillary

Thank you, President Obama, for taking a crucial step forward on gun violence. Our next president has to build on that progress—not rip it away. - Hillary Clinton

7. Excellent quote from Hillary, she! Thank you for posting it here in Hill's Group~

“Just because it’s hard, that’s no excuse not to try”


“Yes, it will be hard, and it won’t happen overnight. It won’t happen during this Congress. It won’t happen during my presidency. But a lot of things don’t happen overnight. A woman’s right to vote didn’t happen overnight. The liberation of African Americans didn’t happen overnight. LGBT rights — that was decades’ worth of work. So just because it’s hard, that’s no excuse not to try.

And if you have any doubt as to why you should feel that “fierce urgency of now,” think about what happened three weeks ago. Zaevion Dobson was a sophomore at Fulton High School in Knoxville, Tennessee. He played football; beloved by his classmates and his teachers. His own mayor called him one of their city’s success stories. The week before Christmas, he headed to a friend’s house to play video games. He wasn’t in the wrong place at the wrong time. He hadn’t made a bad decision. He was exactly where any other kid would be. Your kid. My kids. And then gunmen started firing. And Zaevion — who was in high school, hadn’t even gotten started in life — dove on top of three girls to shield them from the bullets. And he was shot in the head. And the girls were spared. He gave his life to save theirs –- an act of heroism a lot bigger than anything we should ever expect from a 15-year-old. “Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

We are not asked to do what Zaevion Dobson did. We’re not asked to have shoulders that big; a heart that strong; reactions that quick. I’m not asking people to have that same level of courage, or sacrifice, or love. But if we love our kids and care about their prospects, and if we love this country and care about its future, then we can find the courage to vote. We can find the courage to get mobilized and organized. We can find the courage to cut through all the noise and do what a sensible country would do.

That’s what we’re doing today. And tomorrow, we should do more. And we should do more the day after that. And if we do, we’ll leave behind a nation that’s stronger than the one we inherited and worthy of the sacrifice of a young man like Zaevion.”

11. I don't understand how anyone could possibly hate this man.

Whenever he talks about children and gun violence I remember that he and his wife made the decision to step up and serve our country despite the terrible risk to their lives and their beautiful daughters.

Of course this wonderful man feels pain and sorrow for these parents and the children they lost.


Have a peaceful and happy Wednesday Hillary folks.

12. BTW, did you see Chris Matthews' Hillary interview tonight?

It was amazing. He asked her what got her to run for Senate when politicos said she had no chance, and she talked about meeting with female athletes at an event and one of them whispered to her, "Dare to compete." Had my husband in tears.
