This is NOT a political statement. Click on the image above to see a video that shows a 70-something-year-old fellow remembering what it was like to play on the streets of Brooklyn as a child. In the second part of this very short interview with CBS News' Scott Pelley, Senator Bernie Sanders reflects on his childhood in Brooklyn. In it he shares some very insightful thoughts on what a child gets from playing with other children without the guidance of an adult.
