Thank you Bernie supporters for your graciousness [View all]

I am a Hillary supporter.

I have been increasingly saddened by the tone of the posts as the primary season has unfolded. I know for myself I will HAPPILY support whomever the democratic nominee is. It's not that I don't like Bernie, I just like Hillary better.

Today I saw a graciousness and supportive tone from the Bernie group that has made me extremely grateful to be a part of this group and has erased my sadness. So I want to reiterate my support to you as well.

Thank you.
