I must admit, moments after hearing Michelle Obama's speech, I cried just a little. I think I was overwhelmed by my loss in this election. I was hopeful for women this year and although I don't believe Hillary Clinton was the end-all, be-all, I wanted women to rally behind her and get her elected as the first woman president. I want to hear that glass ceiling do more than crack...I want that mother shattered beyond recognition and I want fair pay for all my sisters. It didn't happen this time but I'm hopeful it will in the future. We have to keep the faith, support the Democratic nominee and move forward as a nation. I guess I'm one of those women that the media has identified as Hillaryite, hard to sway. I'm going to do my best to stump for Obama but my heart isn't there, at least not yet. My belief lies within the hearts of all women who have suffered through gender bias, sexual harassment, unfair pay and lack of opportunities or advancement. We will overcome. I am woman, hear me roar in numbers too big to ignore...let that be our anthem once again.
