Dear Hillary Clinton
I'm so grateful and happy that you are "back from the woods" and giving these wonderful speeches. You seem to do exceptionally well and I wish I just had 5% of your strength. Watching your speeches sheds so much light into the darkness we are experiencing right now.
I'm still trying to understand this whole election disaster and I am deeply heartbroken by the way you have been treated by the media, the GOP and even regular people. You have been a life-long public servant to our country and did not deserve to have been attacked and smeared with outright lies. I'm crying every day and think what a wonderful future our country could have if you were in the WH right now. You have helped and fought for so many families, children, immigrants, LGBT people and the disabled---you share the vision of an all-inclusive America.
You ran an incredible campaign and I am so proud to have been part of it as a volunteer. Please, believe me that I tried the best I could to help you win. As you know, this was my first election and I have been in so much emotional pain since then. I have lost faith and hope and all I want to do is seep. I know that is not what you want me to do and I try to #resist #insist#persist and #enlist as much as I can, but my feelings of despair often take over and pulling the cover over my head is very tempting.
Now that the House passed the deadly AHCA bill, I am extremely concerned about my health insurance. I’m currently on Medicaid and may lose coverage if this bill passes. I don’t know what I would do. I probably would become very sick as I could not afford to pay for my medications. It’s still unfathomable to me that such a hurtful agenda “won” over your enlightened and promising future of America. I can barely cope anymore, but I’m still trying to hold on. If you can do it, every one of us should be able to move forward. My only rescue from drowning in the darkness is looking up to you. I feel I have nothing to live for.
My biggest hope is that you run again in 2020. However, I certainly would not want you to get emotionally too hurt again. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that you are the only one who can unify the country and save our democracy. We would roll up our sleeves even more and make sure you would win. You are by far the most qualified and experienced person who can lead this country and the only one who would be able to repair the mess this administration will create. On top of that, you are such a big-hearted amazing woman who cares about all Americans. Plus, the unfairness towards you in this election was just beyond heartbreaking. Everybody in your campaign was betrayed by the system, but most importantly you. No one else deserves more to be President than you
Despite feeling depressed, I called Senators and Representatives, marched in protests and wrote postcards, but I feel like I'm not going anywhere.
I was so excited to learn that you are launching a new Political Action Committee (PAC) to help organizations fight the hurtful Trump agenda. Welcome to the resistance I would be more than happy to for work for you. As you know, I have been out of work for a while and would agree to start as a volunteer to get back into the workforce.
Right now, I just pray to see you and talk to you soon. I'm feeling totally lost and lonely in this whole mess because I am all alone without any support system.
Again, thank you for everything you do and have done in the past. I will always have your back. Let’s move #OnwardTogether because we are #StrongerTogether.
With much love and kindness,
