A strong and wise fighter who keeps believing in America

After a long and hard battle some hours later than the victor has gone on the stage she apologised for not winning this election

for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country.

She knows how disappointed many Americans feel, because she feels it too. Not only do tens of millions of Americans who invested their hopes and dreams in this effort, further in the world billions of people had put their hope in a diplomatic politically experienced person, on who they could build and make sure that that person would be very stable and trustworthy.

Being some one who fought for justice she does not give up to ask the people to come up for their rights and to help to build up  a democratic state.

She said:

Our campaign was never about one person, or even one election. It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted. We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought. But I still believe in America, and I always will. And if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead. Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power.

We don’t just respect that. We cherish it. It also enshrines the rule of law; the principle we are all equal in rights and dignity; freedom of worship and expression. We respect and cherish these values, too, and we must defend them.

Those who faced defeat, not seeing the outcome they wanted, even after all the work they had done, poured their hearts into this campaign, she asked not to give in nor to give up. She said

To some of you who are veterans, it was a campaign after you had done other campaigns. Some of you, it was your first campaign. I want each of you to know that you were the best campaign anybody could have ever expected or wanted.

And to the millions of volunteers, community leaders, activists and union organizers who knocked on doors, talked to their neighbors, posted on Facebook — even in secret private Facebook sites.

I want everybody coming out from behind that and make sure your voices are heard going forward.

The loss may be very painful, for her there is still hope, and she believes it can be even

hopefully sooner than we might think right now.

Once again Hillary Clinton showed to the world she was really trying to bring the best not only for America but also for the rest of the world, in which she thinks there has to be co-operation and not working against each other. She also showed her gratitude to the American nation.

I am so grateful for our country and for all it has given to me.

she said, counting her blessings

every single day that I am an American, and I still believe, as deeply as I ever have, that if we stand together and work together with respect for our differences, strengthen our convictions, and love for this nation, our best days are still ahead of us.

Let us hope that all Americans shall come to see how they all need each other and like Mrs. Rodham Clinton believes

Because, you know, I believe we are stronger together and we will go forward together. And you should never, ever regret fighting for that. You know, scripture tells us, let us not grow weary of doing good, for in good season we shall reap. My friends, let us have faith in each other, let us not grow weary and lose heart, for there are more seasons to come and there is more work to do.

all those who have faith in God and call themselves Christian should stay strong enough in their faith, following Christ Jesus who did not condemn those who where poor and different. Like he was willing to talk to others from different faiths or without any religion or conviction, whores, thieves, criminals, christians should all have ears and eyes also for them and protect the values of life, not loosing eyesight of the Will of God. She as a candidate to run a huge State was not afraid to talk about Scriptures with sincerity, not with a non-saying slogan. Out of her heart she wished youngsters to continue dreaming and going for their dreams, whilst she, after this vast, diverse, creative, unruly, energized campaign, was willing to see that those around her

represent the best of America

having honoured to fight for them, she said

and being your candidate has been one of the greatest honors of my life.

I am incredibly honored and grateful to have had this chance to represent all of you in this consequential election.

For Hillary Clinton, her campaign was never about one person, or even one election.

It was about the country we love and building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and big-hearted. We have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we thought.

After the first results this was also made clear by the people coming on the streets and making havoc, falling in the trap Trump had prepared. It is not by violence or by growing hatred that they will be able to keep America together. They should know some one has tried to saw a certain seed, but those who feel it can be different should use a better seed, not vitriolic and sawing it in the right earth. They too should still like Hillary Clinton believe in America, and like she “always will” they should do too. She said as a concerned person to look to the future, giving Donald Trump the chance to lead and assuring a peaceful transfer of power. That peaceful transfer is something democratic people should respect and cherish it, agreeing that all people may have other ideas and going for it. Enshrining the rule of law the Americans as well the rest of the world shall have to watch that the principles of human values and human rights shall be respected. We in the West are on the look out to see if Jews, Muslims, Christians shall be encouraged to live peacefully together, with all others treated equally with dignity, allowing freedom of worship and expression.

It is not because one or another candidate gave clear evidence not always to respect moral values or to take a decent attitude against others, that the rest of America should come to behave like him and oppose many around them.

Clinton added:

Our constitutional democracy demands our participation, not just every four years, but all the time. So let’s do all we can to keep advancing the causes and values we all hold dear. Making our economy work for everyone, not just those at the top, protecting our country and protecting our planet.

This shall be something each individual in his own region can already start with, by using the sources properly and by demanding their local governments to take measures to keep the area clean and to work against pollution and global warming.

But also concerning how people treat others, locally people can do a lot to demand equality and respect for human rights.

For the Democrats there is place enough in the United States of America for lots of peoples. Clinton said

And breaking down all the barriers that hold any American back from achieving their dreams. We spent a year and a half bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the American dream is big enough for everyone.

For people of all races, and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities. For everyone.

Hopefully the common people shall, at moments, be stronger than politicians who want to break with the rules of human decency and human rights. Because all Americans and all people should know any country is made by its citizens, and they should never let themselves be intimidated by politicians trying to silence opposition.

At no time people should give up their dreams. Though she may have lost the election Clinton still has her hope in the future generation.

I’ve had successes and setbacks and sometimes painful ones. Many of you are at the beginning of your professional, public, and political careers — you will have successes and setbacks too.

This loss hurts, but please never stop believing that fighting for what’s right is worth it.

It is, it is worth it.

To end I also would like to remind all of some old wisdom

In the day of prosperity be joyful but in the day of adversity consider: surely The God Almighty, Elohim Hashem Jehovah, has appointed the one as well as the other, so that man can find out nothing that will come after him (Ecclesiastes 7:14)

    Hilary Clinton won the popular vote by a margin of 240K votes which are still being counted. The electoral college elected Trump in opposition to the popular vote. This happened recently before when Al Gore won the popular vote but the electoral college elected G Bush Jr. We are not a true democracy because the electoral colleges elects our presidents.

      The pinnacle is that donald Trump a few years ago told all, the electoral college was the most corrupt system, although now he came to power by their blessing, it does not look like he will abandon them.

      For us in Europe the U.S.A. seems to be a sham democracy of which the citizens themselves do believe they live in the most democratic and most free state of the world. They do forget they themselves do not keep to the amendments their forefathers wrote down, or they massacre the meaning behind the words. Lots of American do not seem to understand that the freedom of themselves should start by respecting the freedom of others.

      Their voting system seems to us Europeans totally corrupt and unfair to the weaker ones in society. The ones with not enough financial backing can forget it to come into the running for a political post. How can it ever be that in the 21st century there still is not an appropriate division of seats and posts according to the percentage of votes reached by all those who took up their right to come to vote?

      Those electoral colleges not taking into account the amount of votes a candidate really gained, allowing this system still to exist in the 21st century proves that there are still other more important matters for keeping their power that way.

      American citizens should demand a fair counting system and mandates given according the percentage a person received by the will (or grace) of the public.

    Yes, she conceded well. I will give her that.

    As you may realize, I have sincere concerns about the immigration issues that has been created, in my view by major world powers: the USA–because we did nothing to stop Asad nor the rise of ISIS (different problems entirely); All European powers, do nothing to stop Asad nor the rise of ISIS; satanic, sadistic Asad and lastly Russia, supplying arms and rubbles so more Assyrians are killed, maimed, starved and persecuted.

    Per the refugee issues, I now have second-hand information. My dear daughter-in-law is helping support the transition of Syrian Muslim and Christian refugees into the Nashville, TN area. She made a couple of points based on direct information from these refugees. The Christians and Muslim relate well with one another because they have a common plight. At this stage, there are no radicals among these groups. The majority of these refugees want to return to Syria because that is their home. They don’t desire to stay in the USA. Time will tell what will ultimately happen. She, her husband, me and my wife are all compassionate towards illegals and the immigrants who have made it here. We are also very concerned about the vetting process of and lack of data on immigrants out of war-torn countries such as Syria.

    I said the above to let you know where my heart is per the immigrants and their needs. Because we realize that these immigrants did not create their situations. They were handed the situation and they had to deal with it as best they could. I am grieved by their plight. The world should be outraged by Aleppo. Last count I had was 490,000 DEAD! That is a modern holocaust!

    That is backdrop for what I will say about our country and where it is today with a president-elect Donald Trump. He is NOT a perfect guy. Clinton was not a perfect candidate either–even with all her experience.

    In canvassing the couple I mentioned, they voted for Trump and so did my wife & I. Before I tell you why I will tell you I considered three of the candidates in my quandary in making a decision.

    All of us voted against Hillary Clinton rather than for Donald Trump. Most in America and certainly outside the USA can’t get the real story on a person unless they dig. And you have to go back over 50 years. There is a vast amount of data about the Clintons that is available because they have been in public life for a very long time in Arkansas, he as President, her as Senator and Secretary of State. So much of the news is just dropped and not considered in this round but much is alarming! No one looks at the trail of deaths that has stalked those two. There were five deaths of people close to situations related to the Hillary campaign for President. Deaths plagued the Bill Clinton presidency. There was a trail of blood (death) in Arkansas during his governorship. Of course, you realize she was First Lady during his reign–Arkansas and the White House. Hillary Clinton did herself in in the handling of the Benghazi affair as Secretary of State. Her health is failing. I do not believe she would have physically withstood 4 years of the demands of that Office. The Clinton Foundation is a sham. She, Bill and Chelsea could all be convicted based on the legal violations as officers of the foundation.

    I could go on but I will stop there. We don’t know what will happen under Trump. He has got to be better than the chaos that would have ensued if she had taken the helm.

    God bless America!!! I thank Him every day that He is ultimate King!

      Also in Europe we hear from many asylum seekers the are fleeing their country where they would love to return to, because they themselves feel they belong there. They are thorn in the cowardly attitude of the Western world not having gone into Syria at the Egyptian Spring period, having get rid of Asad and the terrorist groups. The world should not only be outraged by Aleppo, they should see how at so many places have been done crimes against humanity by so many different groups, which all should be brought before court.

      Concerning the Clintons you say ” No one looks at the trail of deaths that has stalked those two”, but you seem to forget how many people where hurt and brought to serious problems by the many fraudulent actions and many bankruptcies of Donald Trump and the many lies he told as well the many terrible attitudes that he took in front of other people.

      I personally was in favour for Sanders but would not mind having the very experienced and wise Hilary Clinton having come in charge.

      That deaths plagued the Bill Clinton presidency and the Obama presidency has not so much to do with their personality. In case Trump would have been in charge at that time it even could have been worse. I sincerely have concerns about the future Trump endangering the lives of many and as such also having lots of death on his mind. I am convinced we shall also see a trail of blood (death) in many places in the States as well as in the rest of the world during Trump his presidency.

      You do hope, like many Americans, that Trump has got to be better than the chaos that would have ensued if Hilary Clinton had taken the helm. We can only hope for that and future will tell.

        This is correct! Obama is a … I started to say coward. He may be, but his character is marred in other ways more than coward. He was a good figurehead, good orator. BUT, to coward. I believe world leaders are in a pause. They saw what the Bushes tried and failed to do. You can’t nation build in among Muslims, in Muslim dominate countries. They don’t accept that type input from the West generally. Is viewed as attempt to manipulate or dominate. Also, there will forever be internal conflict, words and force, between differing Muslim factions.

        On Trump: No one said Trump was perfect, not I, no. But, his promises for cleaning up the federal government and it’s practices was definitely refreshing. Can he do it? Who knows? We hoped, we held our noses and voted for him.

        Hillary: She is the epitome of ‘privilege.’ She made several campaign snafus. She call 50% of the US population “deplorables.” She fell (to the ground) and couched on the campaign trail too much among other words or actions that raise serious concerns.
