3. I loved how his older brother

described him as "very truthful" as a boy

He's been this way his entire life.

6. Larry plans to join Bernie on campaign trail!

http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/07/politics/bernie-sanders-brother-larry-sanders-uk/

Excerpt:

"Larry, the elder by six years, plans to join his sibling on the U.S. presidential campaign trail at some point.


Bernie paid tribute to his big brother last month, when he launched a presidential campaign that will see him take on prohibitive Democratic Party favorite Hillary Clinton.

"I owe my brother an enormous amount. It was my brother who actually introduced me to a lot of my ideas," he said at the launch event."

---

"Larry has watched his sibling's political development from his British outpost ever since arriving in England at the end of the '60s. A retired social worker, he has lectured at Oxford and remains deeply involved in health and anti-poverty efforts.

Speaking with a New York accent now overlaid by the plummier tones of southern England, Larry rejected the idea that he and his brother are part of a fringe movement -- even though they are ideologically well to the left of the political center in the UK and the U.S. and have shunned the big political parties.

"I don't think we are out of the mainstream. I think that what we have noticed is that the mainstream has been ignored for a long time," he said.

"Can you believe that you can have a politics that has vast amounts of money -- rich countries -- and more and more of it goes to a tiny amount of people?"

8. Thanks that was so beautiful

In so many ways, his brother has similar characteristics to Senator Sanders - at least from this very short segment. What a remarkable family to have produced two such thoughtful men. Bernie Sanders was a surprisingly cute kid in that picture in the op.

BOTH Sanders brothers are awesome.
