Bernie - He's the real deal

'A story I think y'all should hear and share around 
by Michael E Sparks:'
"My family and I followed the line into a small conference room.
After a few minutes, Bernie walked out and started speaking behind a podium. There was a mother sitting next to me who had shared with me that her daughter had Down Syndrome and that she didn't know how her daughter would handle having to be quiet during the speech. Sure enough, as soon as Sanders started to speak the girl started to yell at the stage. At one time I was a parent to a child with Down Syndrome, so I knew that this was not something that the mother could control.
The daughter was a teenager and I was a little bit worried that those sitting behind us (we were right up front) might think that the girl was heckling Bernie. I could see that the mom was fearing the same thing. I wanted to help with the daughter. I had a few ideas that might work, but they involved me speaking and I was not about to start talking while I was sitting a few feet in front of Bernie Sanders.
It was clear that Bernie's rhythm was thrown off by the constant yelling. Bernie kept speaking while motioning for a security person to come to the podium. Bernie covered the mic and whispered something to the man and then the guard came towards the child with Down Syndrome. I sat in my seat and cringed.
Was this going to be the moment I learned the truth about Bernie Sanders? Was this going to be the moment I learned that he was just a fraud like everyone else in DC?
As I watched the security guard whisper to the mom, I got angrier and angrier. They were going to kick these people out for being disruptive, even though they couldn't help it!
I could not have been more wrong. After a brief conversation the guard led the girl and her mother up to the stage and positioned two chairs so that they could sit on the side of the podium where Bernie was speaking. This seemed to soothe the girl, for she had no further outbursts. She just kept looking up at Bernie and smiling and the mom did as well. As a parent of a special-needs child, I was absolutely blown away by how gracefully and beautifully this entire situation was handled.
Somehow Bernie had sized the situation up, while in the middle of a speech, and had dispatched someone to handle it compassionately.
Bernie was not a fraud. He was a caring and brilliant man, a much better human than all the speeches and articles had lead me to believe.
I sat and listened to the remainder of the speech with tears in my eyes, more convinced than ever that something extremely important was happening in America and I was more determined than ever to do everything in my power to make it happen. I had no idea what I was going to do, but I knew that if I just listened and made myself available, then I would be able to make an impact."
