I don’t expect to get political on my blog since I respect that everyone has different views. But I was able to go see Bernie Sanders last night in Aurora, IL. This was a book tour event hosted by Anderson’s Bookshop. This is exactly what I needed right now.
Senator Sanders is such an inspiration and he motivates me to do more. He spent over an hour talking last night. The beginning was spent mentioning the book, but then he just took off from there. He spoke to use about Texas right away.
Some of the topics he covered were healthcare, voter suppression, the future with our children, climate change, racism and hate, how truly rich the richest people in the world are, immigration, personal stories from people he met, and so much more. He was passionate and funny.
If you are somewhat progressive, please check out this new book. It’s YA and written more for a younger generation to inspire and motivate them.
A handful of the books were signed (not sure how many total) and I was lucky enough to receive one. Guests were also able to buy shirts, hats, and buttons. I did buy a shirt, but it went right into the hamper last night when I got home.
Overall, it was a great night. This was my first time going to any type of political tour and I will definitely be going to more.
