"There is literally no one in the world I don't hate right now

As virtually everyone on this site knows Hillary Clinton soundly defeated Bernie Sanders in the New York primary tonight by anywhere from a 58-42 to a 57-43 margin. There is no doubt this was a severe blow to the Sanders campaign. There is now almost no doubt that Clinton will win the Democratic nomination after this defeat, especially since Pennsylvania and New Jersey which are both major states, are closed primaries.

But that is not what this diary is about. There are plenty of diaries out there already celebrating Clinton's win or talking about it and that's fine. Just as Sanders supporters celebrated his Michigan upset the Clinton people have every right to be happy that their candidate won tonight. I do not want to rain on their well earned parade.

What I want to talk about is something very different than what the pundits, social media, or the campaign surrogates are discussing. I want to talk about why I will continue to support Senator Sanders. I want to talk about why I will be going to my county convention in Washington as a proud delegate for Sanders. I want to talk about why I look him up at least twenty times today. I want to talk about why any of you who are Sanders supporters should continue to stand by him as well, instead of losing hope, getting depressed, and walking away. I want to talk about why the established forces should listen too.

I am a millennial voter. Virtually every person I know, many of them fellow millennials, supports Sanders. We support Sanders by overwhelming margins. In the New York primary my generation supported him by a margin of 34 percentage points. I am far too tired to write a new section as to why but this old diary I posted, many months ago, more than speaks for itself:
