Though the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign did not reach its ultimate goal of putting Sanders in the White House, it is undeniable that the campaign has inspired a permanent change in the Democratic arena, a honor for which Sanders should be immensely proud.

On Monday evening, as Sanders took to the stage at the Democratic convention to offer, once again, his endorsement for Hillary Clinton, the Sanders campaign posted this inspiring political video onto his official Facebook page.

“I understand that many people here in this convention hall and around the country are disappointed about the final results of the nominating process. I think it’s fair to say that no one is more disappointed than I am. But to all of our supporters – here and around the country – I hope you take enormous pride in the historical accomplishments we have achieved.

We only go around once, we may as well make history as we go around.”

The video highlights the most historic elements of the campaign and offers an inspiring promise for the future.

A beautiful homage to a great man, a great campaign, and the great political movement we should all be grateful to have been a part of.
