Dear Hillary,

You are looking so lovely today! Oh it's good to see you in front of the cameras again!

I know you are working very hard, and I just want to wish you continued recovery and success in the challenges we are facing in the world. You are a spectacular Secretary of State, you know! The best I ever have seen. Henry Cabot Lodge is the first one I remember, or maybe Dean Acheson, but only his name.

Anyway, it's wonderful to see you looking so well. I always pray for you.

We hope you get well soon. The world needs you. I have worked my heart out for you since the Iowa caucus and I am truly inspired by you Madame Secretary. I hope the conversation we embarked on 2 years ago continues forever. We will always stand with you.
