“One of the most tragic things that happened yesterday, a beautiful day, was that I was talking to a woman who said that she wouldn’t want to be me for anything in the world. She wouldn’t want to live today and look ahead to what it is she sees because she’s afraid. Fear is always with us but we just don’t have time for it. Not now.”

-Hillary Clinton, writing not this year or 20 years ago but in 1969 in her commencement speech to Wellesley College, which you can read in its entirety here.

America, we don’t have time for fear. And Hillary, thank you for being brave.
