Hillary Clinton has an important message for us all as we prepare for 2017

There’s no doubt about it; the 2016 presidential election will go down in history as one of the most controversial ever - not least of all because Hillary Clinton, despite winning the popular vote of over 2 million, suffered a devastating loss to renowned misogynist and reality star, Donald Trump.

Since then, however, Clinton has made it her mission to restore hope to the masses, offering them words of encouragement as they come to terms with their new President-Elect.

And now, in a powerful and uplifting new year’s message, the seasoned politician’s called upon her supporters to continue to fight for what they believe in.

“Before this year ends, I want to thank you again for your support of our campaign,” writes the former secretary of state. “While we didn't achieve the outcome we sought, I'm proud of the vision and values we fought for and the nearly 66 million people who voted for them.”

Clinton continues by calling upon her supporters to continue to work towards a better America, especially after Donald Trump’s inauguration - although she refuses to acknowledge him by name.

“I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world,” she says.

“The holidays are a time to be thankful for our blessings. So let us rejoice in this season and look forward with renewed hope and determination.”

Clinton finishes by saying: “I wish you and your family health, happiness, and continued strength for the New Year and the work ahead. I look forward to staying in touch in 2017. Onward!

“With deep appreciation and warm wishes, I am yours.”

Clinton has kept a low profile since her shock loss to Trump, 70, last month.

However, according to Us Weekly, the 69-year-old and her husband, Bill, were spotted attending a Christmas Eve service at the United Methodist Church of Mount Kisco near their home in Chappaqua, New York.

The pair greeted supporters with hugs and handshakes, as she told those gathered around her that she felt “excellent”.

Bill, 70, added: “This is our blessing this night every year in this church.”

“I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world.”

“I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world.”

“They don't like to be the centre of attention at the church,” the church’s pastor, Parker Prout, told The Journal News of the couple, who've attended the church for the past decade. 

“They come here to worship like everyone else. They are friends.”
