It makes sense to write a biography about Bernie, besides, it's his birthday today,(Sep.8) I'm also a Bernie fan.
Before February 9, very few people knew Bernie Sanders. He was a senator from the tiny state of Vermont who was running for president. Yet, in this day, he delivered his victory speech, a speech that echoed from Wall Street to Washington. But now, we have to go back in time, seven decades!
Bernie's parents were from Poland, a big sized nation in Eastern Europe. Being Jewish, they feared that they could not survived the invasion from Nazi Germany, so they immigrated to America.
The Sanders family went on to live on Brooklyn, where they had their first son, Larry. Larry was born in April 25, 1934. He would later have a younger brother to play with, Bernie, who was born on September 8, 1941.
They both attended James Madison High School, Bernie was in the Track team and he even played Basketball with his brother. While graduating from high school, Bernie wanted to attend Brooklyn College.
Bernie got to be in in Brooklyn College but didn't like it as much as he did, he wanted to move away. He then decided he was going to Chicago University, where he would study Politics. But Bernie could barely afford college, his family was poor and yet, Bernie wanted to study. Bernie thought about an idea, an idea about free college.
And Free College he fought for.
