What does it feel like to lose? How many tears does it take to begin to heal the pain?
I just listened to Hillary Clinton’s concession speech. It was a remarkable testament to all that is good about Hillary Clinton. She is truly a public servant, and she will not stop her efforts to make our country a stronger, kinder place.
I literally grieve this loss. I fear for our country. I fear for our brothers and sisters who fear deportation. I fear for women who have felt disfranchisement and disrespect. I fear for the millions of people who are benefitting from the Affordable Care Act. I fear about our relations with foreign nations. I fear for all of us.
Still, we must never give up on our country. We must remain involved in the political process and we must pray for our nation as we have never prayed before.
Most of all today, I pray for Hillary. I celebrate her life and give thanks for her many decades of service. And I will always remember the closing words of her speech from the sixth chapter of Galatians.
“So let us not grow weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not lose heart.”
May God continue to bless Hillary Clinton and may God bless and protect this nation.
