In the Wake of the Orlando Massacre, More Sure of Hillary Than Ever

My first thoughts after despair for the victims and their families was a wave of relief that Hillary has a good chance of being our President. These are the kinds of events our President has to face. The thought of Trump handling this kind of crisis is terrifying. This tragedy is all too serious and poses a real threat to Americans.

Several people I ran into today acknowledged, "Hillary is the best person for the job." She has the right attitude about gun control, extensive foreign policy experience, she understands the nuances of discrimination and minority hate crimes, the composure to make the best decisions and the compassion for those affected. Like Obama, she is absolutely the ideal person for a job that requires all those skills.

The events we are facing today are devastating. Heartfelt prayers for all the victims, their families and everyone mourning in the wake of this massacre. Our hearts are broken.

18 Million Cracks- 8 Years Ago Today

Hillary's prophetic speech. The synchronicity is extraordinary.

~18 Million Cracks~

8 years ago today!

For Hillary and The Hillary Group!!

So much love and pride for Hillary and all of you!

Never giving up!

Visions that can change the world trapped inside an ordinary girl
She looks just like me too afraid to dream out loud
And though it's simple your idea, it won't make sense to everybody
You need courage now If you're gonna persevere

To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you're called
So don't be afraid to face the world against all odds

Keep the dream alive don't let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you
Don't give up

Every victory comes in time, work today to change tomorrow
It gets easier, who's to say that you can't fly
Every step you take you get, closer to your destination
You can feel it now, don't you know you're almost there?

To fulfill divine purpose, you gotta answer when you're called
So don't be afraid to face the world against all odds

Keep the dream alive don't let it die
If something deep inside keeps inspiring you to try, don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you

Who holds the pieces to complete the puzzle?
The answer that can solve a mystery
The key that can unlock your understanding
It's all inside of you, you have everything you need yeahhhh

Sooooo, keep the dream alive don't let it die
If something deep inside, keeps inspiring you to try don't stop
And never give up, don't ever give up on you

Sometimes life can place a stumbling block in your way
But you're gotta keep the faith, bring what's deep inside your heart yeah your
Heart to the light
And never give up Don't ever give up on you

Nooo don't give up,
No, no, no, no don't give up
Oh, no, no, no, no don't...give...up

Making Dreams Come True

With the reality of the first woman in history to win the nomination for President of the United States upon us, I find myself thinking about dreams. I remember being overwhelmed with emotion on election night in 2008, overcome with joy that we had elected our first black president. Obama had achieved what we never could have imagined be possible. I gazed at all the tear streaked faces and knew we were sharing an event that would be cherished as a high point in all of our lives. We were sharing a dream come true. For women and minorities, we are writing the script of history again.

Although many detractors are trying to quench the phenomenal nature of what Hillary is achieving, she, like Obama, is on the precipice of an accomplishment that will change the world. Make no mistake: women across the globe are watching this election and billions look to Hillary as a role model and leader. Because the United States is the world's leader and has never allowed a woman to be President, this milestone matters. Through her achievement, women can believe they have a destiny that is being made manifest. It is so momentous many scarcely allow themselves to actually believe it might happen and to take in all that means for the possibilities for women worldwide. What has always been absolutely impossible might just be possible.

There was a story about a little girl who heard the news that Hillary might make it a reality that a girl can grow up to be President. She beamed and responded with hope and joy. Her unadulterated elation is one that resides in so many supporters, quiet and watchful beneath an interrupted history of discrimination, chastisement and ridicule for even daring to hope. What some perceive as a lack is in reality a caution wrought by years of impossibility, of knowing that something that is so dreamed of could never come true.

That is the reason Hillary's supporters proceed carefully but with steady drive, just as she has. And, far from a lack of excitement, it is a focused, intensity of purpose that those who have not been prevented from sharing dreams can never imagine. While others may be loud and reckless with the invincible confidence of those who believe victory is at hand, they have far less at risk and have a history of losing far less. Many of the disenfranchised instinctively know that such abandon is a privilege compared to the tempered strength with which Hillary, minorities and women have had to pursue their dreams. They have not been able to celebrate victories before they are truly theirs because they are so hard fought and so rarely, if ever, won.

Hillary and her supporters do not take their dreams for granted. Each step toward them is measured with equal parts of courage, immense gratitude, resilience and joy. That is what heroes look like. That is what a history making triumph looks like. And that is how the dreams of so many before us and those ahead are going to finally come true.

That is Hillary's number of pledged delegates going into tonight's election.

1776 is also the date of the Declaration of Independence.

Coincidence? I think not!
