Bernie Has Always Lived the Change I Wish to See in the World

Bernie and his campaign move me to tears, in a very good way.

He hasn't had to evolve; he's always fought for respect, dignity and equal rights for all people. In the segretated '60's, he put himself (physically) on the line in the civil rights movement.  He has always stood up for LGBTQI Americans, LONG before it recently became politically correct to do so.  He stands up for the earth, which has no voice.  He stands up for the poor, reminding us that our government is supposed to be by the people and for the people, not by the corporations and for their profit.  He stands for children, for college students and for senior citizens.  He stands for families--for policies that embody and empower true family values, like maternity and paternity leave, child care, and health care for all.  He has always stood up for what is right.  He has always seen it.  He has always known it.  He has always lived it.
