I put on my Blue Bernie shirt to run some errands this weekend. I was reminded of the first time I wore it and how for a brief moment, I found myself a little worried of attracting negative or even aggressive attention.
But as I put my hand on my chest, I was overwhelmed by another feeling. I felt my heart beating through the Bernie logo and It brought me back to my childhood. I remembered this feeling from years before when I wore my first Superman t-shirt.
Growing up, Superman was much more to me than just another comic hero to fawn over. This fictional character embodied all the values I hold dear and continue to strive toward: Truth, Justice and using your abilities to take care of others. A true personification of hope.
Now as an adult, I feel the same way wearing my red, white, and blue Bernie shirt. Bernie is the embodiment of Truth, Justice, Equality and Hope.
Since 2015, Bernie has helped refocus my rage and despair with a heartless broken system and replaced it with determination, purpose and hope.
I am proud to wear Bernie on my chest. Through a lifetime of fighting for truth, justice and equality, he has shown us what we are capable of and what we should strive for as a people. The status quo will not work anymore—There is no going back.
Thank you Bernie for lighting up this path and for never, EVER giving up. We are with you, shoulder to shoulder.
For all my friends out there. This is our chance to step toward that Bright, Hopeful, and Prosperous future for ALL that we dream of—the right of all Humanity.
Fight for your future!
