Last week, seven-year-old Lilly captured the internet’s heart when her mum, Jennifer, posted an emotionally charged and inspirational letter Hillary Clinton sent to her daughter on her blog.
Earlier in the year, Jennifer Rosen-Heinz sent a note to Hillary Clinton about how Lilly wanted to change her name to Lillary (which as a Lily, I totally appreciate):
Jennifer didn’t really expect anyone to take the time to respond to her note. She thought they might one of those vague, stock letters that politicians and famous people often send out.
Which is why she was so surprised when this letter landed in her letterbox:
I literally tear up every single time I read the last line, “I may become the first woman President, but you Lilly, could be the next.”
Lillary’s parents decided to share the letter with everyone so that others could share in the Hill-spiration – and ohh, we’re glad they did.
So what have we learned, weepy gals? Whatever you want to be, don’t quit. Because Hillary sure as hell hasn’t.
