Four thousand passionate Bernie Sanders Revolution folks came together from 49 states, Canada and parts around the world to explore the state of America and where to go next. A huge amount of credit goes to National Nurses United for pulling together the organization of this event, including bringing in dozens of co-sponsoring organizations to be found at the bottom of this thepeoplessummit.org page.

A big message to take from this event came when Bernie Sanders told a packed crowd of 4000 that Donald Trump didn't win, the Democrats lost. The audience erupted with cheers of agreement, rising to their feet in outrage. Someone told me that Hillary supporters spewed thousands of tweets telling Bernie supporters to give it up and get with the Democrats. Really? Bernie pointed out how the Democrats have lost the House, the Senate, the White House, two thirds of state Governorships, even more state legislature.

Nina Turner told an 8:30 Sunday morning group of thousands, "It is good for the family to come together and be renewed, but then we have the hard work. Titles are good, but purpose is better."

I tweeted some of my favorite quotes. and images. Let's start with this video-- the Emma Goldman quote inspired this: "A revolution without dancing is not a revolution worth having."

Bernie Sanders listed some of the progressive victories. Twitter limited length of video. He went on a lot longer.

Bernie, Bernie, the crowd roared. Bernie came back with his bottom up message,

"It's not Bernie. It's you. We are in this together. We always have been and always will be."
