Hillary Clinton delivered a speech last night (Wednesday) at a fundraiser for the Children's Defense Fund in Washington D.C. This was Clinton’s first public speech since her presidential loss. “There have been a few times this past week where all I wanted to do was curl up with a good book and our dogs and never leave the house again,” Clinton told the audience while admitting that it was not easy for her to come to the gala.

“I know many of you are deeply disappointed about the results of the election,” continued Clinton. “I am, too — more than I can ever express.”

“But as I said last week, our campaign was never about one person or even one election,” added Clinton. “It was about the country we love and about building an America that is hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted.”

At the gala, Clinton urged her supporters to continue to voice their opinions. “America is worth it,” she continued. “Our children are worth it. Believe in our country, fight for our values and never, ever give up.”
