Thank You Bernie by Abby Zimet, CommonDreams staff writer

.

Sharing the bittersweet aftermath of Clinton's likely victory, Bernie supporters have flooded the hashtag #ThankYouBernie with heartfelt thanks for a remarkable campaign by a man who's already spent 50 years fighting to give a voice to the voiceless. They've thanked him for ignoring the experts, taking on the Democratic establishment, and fighting like hell; for recognizing black and poor and Palestinian lives; for newly inspiring the young and not-so-young who years ago gave up on being inspired, but who now vow to keep on fighting; for being humble, gracious, tireless despite the denial and condescension of most mainstream media; for "accepting misfits, radicals, rabble-rousers and rappers into the inner circle of your campaign"; for speaking the truth, doing what's right, staying on track, giving a damn. One meme circulating: "Do no harm, but take no shit." May he, and we, prevail.

2. Inspired confidence in our power to effect change.

Bernie’s campaign accomplished amazing things. We need to embrace those accomplishments. Use those victories to feed confidence in our own power to effect change. Hope and confidence are the antidote to cynical immobility.

Some quotes that seem appropriate at this juncture.
