Why this photo of a 90-year-old woman voting for Hillary Clinton is going viral
Casting a ballot for the first female presidential candidate of a major party is an exciting, unforgettable experience for many people (*raises my hand*), but it takes on a special meaning for women who waited decades for this moment. A photo of a 90-year-old woman voting for Hillary Clinton is going viral — and it’s proven that, despite the viciousness of this election cycle, Clinton supporters know that love trumps hate and no amount of Trump’s vitriol can take that away from us.
Over 2,500 members of National Pantsuit Day, all of whom are self-proclaimed “nasty women and bad hombres,” commented with their condolences. Harris says he and his brother are overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness and support.
He jokingly told the Huffington Post that the viral photo was the perfect send-off for his mom because “she always was a bit of an attention-seeker.”
The hatred spread by Trump and his supporters has been overwhelming, but gestures like this are powerful reminders that love trumps hate. On November 8th, we have the opportunity to prove it through our votes.
