When I was a little girl, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut, but was told that Deaf people could not become astronauts. I was dismayed. Likewise, Hillary wrote to NASA when she was young and inquired about becoming an astronaut. She was told that women could not become astronauts. Now she is running for president and may very well become the first female president. Female astronauts exist now, too. Very inspiring! The lesson in this is to not give up. I have two moms who have been together for 24 years. When I was young, they could not marry because same-sex marriage was not allowed. Today, same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states. Again, the lesson in this is to not give up. Change can happen. Hillary understands the importance of not giving up. She knows that focusing on small step-by-step changes will ultimately lead to big changes. Hillary’s vision of how to achieve these changes centers on including different groups of people such as women, Deaf people, people with disabilities, people of color, and other minorities, all of whom have much to contribute. If we do not include and work with them, we will miss out on their unique skills. Hillary and the Democratic Party share the same vision of including different minority groups. Hillary does not give up – she is persistent and will work hard to fight for changes until we reach them. This is why we must elect Hillary as our next president.
