Scars that Speak

After the 2016 U.S. presidential election results, I felt paralyzed and helpless. I watched Hillary Clinton put herself together after a crushing defeat and give a concession speech with class, respect, and grace.

I want to show that despite these harrowing experiences, the generation of older women still put themselves back together and kept walking forward. I hope in this time of unrest and uncertainty, that I can be as strong as they are, and that I can teach my two daughters to do the same.
