About the Author: Hillary Rodham Clinton serves as the 67th Secretary of State of the United States.

Thank you.

That’s what I want to say one last time before I finish my tenure as Secretary. Thank you for four wonderful years.

When President Obama asked me to serve as Secretary of State, I was determined to restore America’s leadership and to elevate diplomacy and development as core pillars of American power, because I was convinced that they are critical for solving problems and seizing opportunities worldwide.

I will walk out the door today even more convinced of that — because of you, the men and women of the U.S. Foreign and Civil Service. Because of the work we have done together and its importance to our nation and world.
