This week on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon had his female writers write letters to Hillary Clinton — right in front of her. Clinton, who was Fallon’s guest for the episode, listened as they read aloud sentiments that were funny, touching, and all-too-real, but none of them were quite as emotional as special guest Miley Cyrus’s.

Through tears, Miley read:
Thank you, Hillary, for being a constant beacon of strength, hope, and determination for me and millions of other young woman. You’ve been a role model and an inspiration and a voice of reason in uncertain times. I could go on and on but I’d like to get right to the point: Can I give you a hug?
Of course, Clinton wasn’t about to deny her that. After an emotional embrace, Clinton decided she wanted to write her own letter:
Thank you, Miley, the Tonight Show writers, and all of the women and young girls out there who are smart, strong, and deserving of every opportunity. Together, we’ve made our voices heard, we’ve done great things, and we’ve come a long way. But as Miley would say, “We can’t stop, and we won’t stop.”

What can we say? Even though Clinton didn’t win the election, she made her mark on history. And we won’t forget that.
