Keep Going

Hillary Rodham Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in Denver on August 26, 2008:
"On that path to freedom, Harriett Tubman had one piece of advice.
If you hear the dogs, keep going.
If you see the torches in the woods, keep going.
If they're shouting after you, keep going.
Don't ever stop. Keep going.
If you want a taste of freedom, keep going.
Even in the darkest of moments, ordinary Americans have found the faith to keep going.
I've seen it in you. I've seen it in our teachers and firefighters, nurses and police officers, small business owners and union workers, the men and women of our military – you always keep going...
That is our duty, to build that bright future, and to teach our children that in America there is no chasm too deep, no barrier too great – and no ceiling too high – for all who work hard, never back down, always keep going, have faith in God, in our country, and in each other."
Hillary has always lived these words.

Through obstacles big and small, public and private, and professional and personal, she has always...always...kept going.

And she will keep going until she finally breaks that highest and hardest glass ceiling once and for all on November 8th, 2016.

Even then, she will still keep going like never before.

Why? Because that's simply what Hillary Rodham Clinton does...and will always keep a daughter, a lawyer, a wife, a First Lady, a mother, a senator, a Secretary of State, a candidate, and as the next President of the United States.

  1. well said, and I liked Barack's joke, if it works he'll give his speech next year to Goldman Sachs, earn himself some serious Tubman's.

    We are so lucky to have her running and when she wins, we'll live in a well-run nation, with progressive and nice values, and love and more funny.

    thanks scan

    1. You're welcome! I can't wait for Madam President. Seriously...CAN'T WAIT!

    2. I am going to see her this Friday, there is a San Francisco reception, she's on the fundraising trail, for the ticket. It'll be the first time for me to see her in person, although I feel like I know her very well, she was a year behind me in school and except for IQ, and well social skills and oh yeah endurance, stamina .... and she's a hard working square, and a Methodist 'good works,' there are differences, ... but we're close to the same age

      I also put myself on the wait list for the Army Navy Club in DC for inauguration weekend, with any luck whoever booked the room or is ahead of me on the wait list is Republican.

    3. Hillary is coming here to Austin in a couple of weeks, but considering my life change I probably don't have the $$$. It's ok though...I ran into her on the ropeline in Iowa!
