Hillary Clinton, the first woman to be nominated as a presidential candidate for a major political party in U.S, letter to a 8-year-old girl, who too lost election in School presidency, went viral.
It may recalled that Hillary lost in the Electoral College to now-President Donald Trump. She won the popular vote (by several million votes), but, sadly, did not win the 2016 presidential election. Much of the country mourned, including women who feel frustrated in their thwarted attempts to break the proverbial glass ceiling that’s keeping women down.
An 8-year-old girl in College Park, Maryland, seems to be related to Clinton, now. Martha Kennedy Morales, a third grader, ran for class president at her school. She lost to a popular fourth-grade boy.
First, their election was deemed invalid, as six of the students hadn’t filled out their ballots correctly. (They’re kids, after all). Then, she lost by one vote. In turn, she became vice president.
Martha’s father had been posting about the election (and his daughter’s campaign) on Facebook, which is apparently how news of it eventually reached Clinton herself.
After the news did reach her, Clinton sent the budding politician a letter with words of encouragement and fortitude—plus a lot of honesty. Martha explained this turn of events herself very casually and endearingly, referring to the former secretary of State as “Hillary,” in an interview:
Sharing her excitement on Twitter, Martha said “It started by my dad posting on Facebook about me running for class president. And then, I guess, somebody told Hillary…” “My mom was just picking me up from school, and she pulled the letter out of her purse,” Martha explained of this magic moment. “I opened it up, and it was a letter from Hillary Clinton. I was very surprised,” she added.
