Letter: Hillary Clinton has a plan for America

If ever there was a woman of internal strength, it is Hillary Clinton. She reminds me of my strong mother who always said, “the best helping hand is at the end of your own arm.” She has endured a lifetime of criticism in any effort she pursues, being an early pioneer for health care for children who are the future of our country.

Clinton has a plan, a purpose and a proper address to all Americans, in every neighborhood. Her positive manner is a stark contrast to Donald Trump. The darkness that emits from his mouth overshadows any message of hope that he seems to label his campaign with. He labels everything, people, possessions and refers to himself as humble, religious and unbiased about everything. Really?

Clinton, in contrast, emphasizes hard work and diligence and a never-ending willingness to not be knocked down and a continuance to rise up and pursue her life of service to America. She is and has been a servant of the American people.

I remember seeing the figure of a woman looking weary from yet another long, tiring trip, descending the many steps down from the aircraft that took her to very corner of this world as Secretary of State.
