To which Hillary replied:
“Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you — there will be lots of them.”
Clinton even signed it an -H which means she wrote it personally, and it did not come from one of her campaign staff members.
