Sitting down to do this for the ninth time is difficult. It was hard last year. I didn’t want to review such a disappointing year, but my dear friend and Hillary supporter non pareil, Robyn Cope, begged me to do it, so I did. Robyn lasted only five days into Trump’s administration. She passed away on January 25. So I will do this once again in her honor, and also, of course, in honor of Hillary’s continued spirit and strength.

There is one good thing about 2017. We began in the depths, but we climbed out, started a movement, and Hillary Clinton came out of the woods to encourage us in all of it: the Women’s March, The Resistance, Me Too, and all the people – women and men – galvanized by what happened in 2016 to Run For Something and make the kinds of changes that are fair for all and benefit everyone.

Here are some highlights of January 2017.

One January 1, Hillary was named The Guardian’s Person of the Year.

She attended the final performance of The Color Purple on Broadway and received a standing ovation from the audience.

On January 10, she returned to the State Department for the launch of the Diplomacy Center, the first floor of which was dedicated and named the Hillary Rodham Clinton Pavilion.

Hillary and Bill Clinton (left) were spotted having dinner with Ted Danson (right) and his wife, Mary Steenburgen, at the upscale seafood restaurant Estiatorio Milos in the Midtown neighborhood of Manhattan on WednesdayThe four braved bad weather to attend a double date at the restaurant. Hillary Clinton has make public speaking appearances just three times since conceding in the presidential election in November

This time at a Broadway play, The Humans, with another standing ovation.

Inauguration Day came, and she went. It was not easy. She looked beautiful in suffragette white and wore a lovely smile – most of the time. (The rest of us found smiling harder.)

In recent appearances on talk shows, Hillary has said that the day after the inauguration gave her renewed hope and energy.
