Watch Hillary Clinton’s History-Making Speech From Last Night

Last night, for the first time in American history, a woman has accepted a major party’s nomination for president of the United States.

Sure, we all knew this moment was coming for Hillary Clinton, but it doesn’t make it any less powerful. Here are a few of our favorite parts of her speech:

“My friends we’ve come to Philadelphia — the birthplace of our nation — because what happened in this city 240 years ago still has something to teach us today. We all know the story. But we usually focus on how it turned out — and not enough on how close that story came to never being written at all.”

America is once again at a moment of reckoning. Powerful forces are threatening to pull us apart. Bonds of trust and respect are fraying.”

“And just as with our founders, there are no guarantees. It truly is up to us. We have to decide whether we all will work together so we all can rise together.”

Tonight, we’ve reached a milestone in our nation’s march toward a more perfect union: the first time that a major party has nominated a woman for President.”

 “When any barrier falls in America, for anyone, it clears the way for everyone. When there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit. So let’s keep going, until every one of the 161 million women and girls across America has the opportunity she deserves.”

“So enough with the bigotry and bombast. Donald Trump’s not offering real change. He’s offering empty promises. What are we offering? A bold agenda to improve the lives of people across our country — to keep you safe, to get you good jobs, and to give your kids the opportunities they deserve. The choice is clear, my friends.”

“Yes, the world is watching what we do. Yes, America’s destiny is ours to choose. So let’s be stronger together. Let’s look to the future with courage and confidence. Let’s build a better tomorrow for our beloved children and our beloved country. When we do, America will be greater than ever.”
