This story of Hillary Clinton's visit with one 9/11 victim is going viral

Katie Waizer first met Hillary Clinton when the then-New York senator visited her father in the hospital, recovering from injuries sustained during 9/11.

Clinton, Waizer said in a now-viral Facebook post, visited her family at the hospital "with no fanfare, no press, and no agenda" just a few months after the terrorist attack:

Because while some politicians were using 9/11 as a photo op, she was working tirelessly behind the scenes to make sure that survivors and victim's families were getting the help they needed. She couldn't have been kinder or more gracious, even encouraging me when I told her I wanted to be the first female (Jewish) president.

Clinton didn't forget about the young girl she met even after she left the hospital, Waizer detailed on Facebook.

"A couple of weeks later, the phone rang," Waizer recalled. "The caller asked who it was, and upon answering 'it's Katie, who is this?' I heard 'hi Katie, this is Hillary Clinton — how did that social studies test go?"

And while Clinton was with the Waizers in the wake of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, Katie Waizer is with the Democratic presidential nominee now.

"THIS is the kind of person I want leading my country – someone who's always fighting for all of us, who remembers the little things and the little people, even when there's no one there to see it," she wrote in the Facebook post. "I was with her then, and this is (one of many reasons why #I'mWithHer now."

Clinton has often been criticized on the campaign trail for failing to appear "likable" enough, but Waizer's viral post certainly shows a softer side of the nominee.
