These Teens Taught Bernie Sanders The ‘I Love You’ Hand Sign And It’s The Most Precious Thing On The Internet

Bernie Sanders won a big chunk of America’s heart during election season, and he continues to win mine every day. Mostly because he’s just such a cute, pure human being. How can you not love this man?!

Yesterday Bernie posted a few photos he took with some of his younger fans to Instagram. Not only are they hilarious, but they’re a reminder of what a sweet man he is.

It started with this awkward photo, in which Bernie obviously has no idea what’s going on.

Seriously, just look at the pure confusion on his face.

But the end result is absolutely adorable. Seriously, just look at his goofy grin.

Bernie’s caption was just as precious:

“At first I was apprehensive, but the kids told me this hand gesture is for peace and love and I’m all for that.”


Keep being perfect, Bernie. You’re giving us all hope. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
