Everyone wants a piece of this pin.

We should have known that if anyone could beat Madeleine Albright at her own brooch game, it would be Madeleine Albright herself.

The former secretary of state and her epic pin collection were back at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night to watch Hillary Clinton make her highly anticipated nominee speech ― and to shatter our hearts into a million pieces with the most perfect shattered glass ceiling brooch.

“After tonight, this pin will be the only piece of glass ceiling left at #DNCinPHL! #Tweetmypins #imwithher,” Albright (or her brilliant social media manager) tweeted, earning an instant slew of retweets and faves.

She is, of course, referring to the glass ceiling Clinton has broken as the first female presidential nominee for a major U.S. political party. This congratulatory gesture from Albright, who was the first woman to serve as secretary of state, is touching, emotional, and the very epitome of girl power.

Whether you’re “with her” or not, you can’t help but appreciate this pin in all its glory.
