As we left the building, we spotted Senator Bernie Sanders, by himself, striding down the sidewalk away from us. We took off running and yelling and were able to catch up with him. We told him how much we appreciated his work and had this photo snapped. Look how excited we were.
In one of my earlier blog posts, I wrote about Bobby Kennedy. I was inspired by Bobby, and all my political life I have worked for political campaigns that reflect the commitment I felt working for him. His murder, denying the people their chosen leader, welded my outrage to my activism, for all time.
I have never found another candidate for president to inspired me until now. Each and everyone of them was a compromise, a "better than the alternative."
Bernie Sanders inspires me. Watch his Madison speech. Near the end (at around 1:00:00) he advises us to "Think big." I agree with this. STRONGLY.
