Ryan Moore spoke Tuesday evening as one of the “everyday Americans” who addressed the convention at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Moore, from South Sioux City, said it is an honor to call Hillary Clinton his friend.
“Here’s what I can tell you from my years knowing Hillary Clinton: she’s compassionate. Every time I see Hillary, she remembers meaningful details about my life, sometimes from years earlier,” Moore stated.
Moore suffers from spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia dwarfism, described as a rare form of dwarfism. He first met Clinton in 1994 when she was First Lady during a visit to Washington, D. C. for an event advocating for health care reform. He was seven.
Moore’s condition requires multiple surgeries.
“Every time I have a big operation coming up, I always receive a note from Hillary full of encouragement and kindness,” Moore said. “She lifts my spirits.”
Moore, now 29, called Clinton compassionate and genuine.
“I wish everyone could get to know Hillary’s heart like I have. She always looks out for the little guy, no pun intended, and that’s why I’m so proud to support Hillary Clinton as our next president.”
