Ex US Presidential Aspirant, Bernie Sanders Marks 76th Birthday

Bernard Sanders (born September 8, 1941) is an American politician who has been the junior United States Senator from Vermont since 2007. Sanders is the longest serving independent in U.S. congressional history. Sanders was born and raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York City
and graduated from the University of Chicago in 1964. While a student he was an active protest organizer for the Congress of Racial Equality. Sanders announced his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination on April 30, 2015. On July 12, 2016, Sanders formally endorsed Clinton in her unsuccessful general election campaign against Republican Donald Trump, while urging his supporters to continue the "political revolution" his campaign had begun.

Sanders and Deborah Shiling, whom he met in college, married in 1964 and bought a summer home in Vermont; they had no children and divorced in 1966. Sanders's son, Levi Sanders, was born in 1969 to girlfriend Susan Campbell Mott. In December 1987, during his tenure as mayor, Sanders recorded a folk album titled We Shall Overcome with 30 Vermont musicians. As Sanders was not skilled at singing, he performed his vocals in a talking blues style. Sanders rarely speaks about religion. He describes himself as "not particularly religious" and "not actively involved" with organized religion. He has said he believes in God, though not necessarily in a traditional manner: "I think everyone believes in God in their own ways," … Kindly wish him a happy birthday … ..
