Hillary inspired me to be me

Joseph Robichaud   —  

Growing up in a world or state that is against the LGBTQ community, I thought that I would never come out. But in this past year, Hillary has shined a light into my heart by showing me that there is someone out there fighting for me and the fighting for the LGBTQ community. So I decided to come out to my friends and family. Because if Hillary Clinton can run for president in a country where women are still fighting for equal rights, then I can do what's right for me, not those who are wanting to put me down.

Because of her remarkable courage and strength I have even decided that I am going to run for office so that I can show others who struggled just as much as I did that there is someone out there fighting for them. I just really want to thank Hillary Clinton for all that she has done for me and for our country. It is because of her courage to fight that I am living my truth and I am so happy to have voted for a woman who has spent her career fighting for those who do not have a voice. So thank you, Hillary Clinton, from the bottom of my heart. You are a true inspiration!
