On Friday, the popular Facebook page Humans of New York posted an interview with a gay teen who spoke candidly about his fears (for unknown reasons, the post was later removed by Facebook and eventually reposted). Like nearly everything HONY posts, it was practically made to go viral and despite early problems with Facebook, it did. So viral in fact, that it attracted a very mom-like comment by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The official Clinton page left an appropriately inspirational response: “Prediction from a grown-up: Your future is going to be amazing. You will surprise yourself with what you’re capable of and the incredible things you go on to do. Find the people who love and believe in you – there will be lots of them.”

The comment was signed “- H” indicating that it was written by Clinton herself rather than her campaign team. The comment was shared widely by Clinton’s staff including Kristina Schake, Hillary For America’s deputy communications director, whose tweet is embedded above.
