After a seemingly endless election finally ended with a surprising result, many celebrities have been sharing their thoughts. Among those was the beloved Leslie Knope from the U.S. Department of the Interior in Pawnee, Indiana.
Ms. Knope wrote her thoughts in the form of a letter to America. As a long time public servant, Ms. Knope has become a role model for young women by showing them they can achieve anything if they work hard for it.
The message in her letter was consistent with how Ms. Knope has lived her life. She encouraged young girls by telling them “You are going to run this country, and this world, very soon”. She closed the letter by referring to Donald Trump, saying “He is the present, sadly, but he is not the future. You are the future. Your strength is a million times his. Your power is a billion times his. We will acknowledge this result, but we will not accept it. We will overcome it, and we will defeat it. Now find your team, and get to work”.
