Anita Harris cast a mail-in ballot for Hillary Clinton last week and then passed away a few days later of natural causes (unrelated to her voting for Hillary Clinton). She was 90. Her son posted the story in a private Facebook group called National Pantsuit Day on Nov. 2nd, along with a picture of his mom, and it unleashed a torrent of love from HRC fans, wracking up thousands of comments of condolences and support.
Here's a screen grab of the original, very moving post:
In an interview with the Huffington Post, Scott Harris said he and his brother were "overwhelmed" by the massive response to his post and they saw it as a positive sign. “What is amazing is that human kindness still exists within this contentious election," he said. "It reminds me of people stopping and taking off a hat as a funeral procession passed by. Honoring a complete stranger. Just shows Love Trumps Hate.”
Also? Anita Harris sounds like she was really, really rad. Apparently she didn't want a traditional service. Instead, “she just wanted us to go eat great Chinese food so when we do we will toast her and HRC," said Scott. "Frankly I can’t think of a better sendoff for mom than going viral. She always was a bit of an attention-seeker. LOL.” (If there is a Heaven, she's up there like "HELL YEAH I WENT VIRAL!!!")
If this doesn't make you want to go out and vote next Tuesday, IDK what will.
Side note: voting for Hillary Clinton has been in no way found to cause illness or death. But even if it did, it might be worth the risk.
