On Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton spoke at the Children’s Defense Fund’s 26th annual Beat the Odds Celebration in Washington, D.C., her first public appearance since losing the election. She delivered an emotional speech, during which she mentioned that earlier this week, she felt like just curling up with a good book or their dogs and never leaving the house again. She addressed the disappointment of the election results and encouraged the audience not to give up on the values we share, but to persevere and continue to beat the odds.
How long would it take you, after such a disappointing life event, to resurface with your head held high?
